HOUSTON (AP) Dray Joseph hit Lee Doss for a 16-yard touchdown pass to give Southern University a 34-27 double overtime victory over Jackson State Saturday in the Southwestern Athletic Conference Championship.
During the ensuing drive by Jackson State (8-4, 8-1), running back Tommy Gooden stepped out of bounds to negate what would have been a 5-yard touchdown pass from Clayton Moore.
Both teams failed to score in the first overtime. Anthony Balancier intercepted Moore to end the Jackson State's first attempt in overtime. Yet Gregory Pittman's 37-yard field goal attempt was blocked by Conard Brown, keeping the Tigers' hopes alive.
