Officials at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome say they still expect the annual Bayou Classic football game to be in New Orleans.

Stadium operators spoke yesterday as conflicting reports surfaced that the venue for the 47th annual match-up between Southern University and Grambling State could still change.

The Superdome released a statement saying they remain optimistic the game will be played as scheduled in November.

The Southwestern Athletic Conference Council of Presidents and Chancellors are expected to address the game's location at a meeting later this month.
