Jackson St. holds on to edge Southern 19-14

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Jackson State stopped Southern on downs inside the 10-yard line with a minute left and held on for a 19-14 Southwestern Athletic Conference win Saturday night.

The Jaguars (2-3, 2-1 SWAC) took over on their own 25 midway through the fourth quarter and marched quickly to the Southern 14. But the drive fizzled and Dray Joseph's fourth-down pass from the 7 fell incomplete.

Jackson State (3-2, 3-0) had taken a 19-7 lead in the third quarter on 2-yard touchdown runs by Clayton Moore and Rakeem Simms. Joseph brought Southern back with a 70-yard drive capped by a 19-yard strike to Lee Doss with a minute left in the third.

The Tigers had a balanced attack with 190 yards rushing and 165 passing from Moore.

Joseph finished with 246 yards passing. Lenard Tillery had a 60-yard TD run to put the Jags up 7-3 at halftime.
