Jackson State 66, Grambling 24

After going into halftime with Jackson State leading 21-17, JSU came out firing on all cylinders outscoring Grambling 45-7 in the second half. Quaterius Hawkins was unable to repeat the production he put together last week as he went only 7-19 on pass attempts for 22 yards while also throwing a pick.

Texas Southern 24, Southern 0
This makes two straight weeks where Southern has struggled to produce offensively. BeSean McCray ended the day with 163 yards passing with three interceptions.

He ended the day throwing an efficient 16 of 22 on the day to go with his two scores. Despite a tough second half, Texas Southern’s defense held up on their end. Wideout, Derek Morton, came through in his second straight game by posting four catches for 91 yards and a score after pulling in for more than 100 yards in the loss last week.
