Alabama St. 16, Texas Southern 13
The defenses owned this one in the first half, with both clubs barely eclipsing 100 total yards. Texas Southern opened the scoring on a Jacorey Howard one-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. Alabama State finally got on the board with just over six minutes left in the first half compliments of a Nathanial Eichner 27-yard field goal to send this one to intermission with the Tigers up four. A pair of Eichner field goals sandwiched an Andrew Body 2-yard touchdown run for TSU to keep it a four-point game with ten minutes left in the fourth quarter after Richard Garcia III missed the PAT. The Hornets finally found the end zone and took their first lead of the game when Ja’Won Howell ran it in from two yards out to give Alabama St. a 16-13 lead with just over seven minutes left. On their next possession, Texas Southern turned the ball over on downs after driving into Hornets territory. From their, Alabama State ran out the clock to send the Tigers down to defeat. Neither offense had much success, with Alabama St. outgaining Texas Southern 329 yards to 238. With the loss, TSU falls to 1-2 in conference play.
