JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Austin Howard threw for 180 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score as Southern kept Jackson State winless with a 35-17 victory on Saturday night in a game that was delayed more than an hour due to lightning.
Herbert Edwards rushed for 160 yards and a score. The Jaguars (4-3, 1-3 SWAC) had possession for over 35 minutes and outgained Jackson State 379-254.
Howard ran for an 11-yard score in the first quarter and Danny Johnson scored from the 5 in the second for a 14-10 lead with 12:39 to go in the half. Southern scored on a fake field goal attempt on fourth-and-four, capping a 10-play, 80-yard drive for a 21-10 lead.
The Tigers (0-6, 0-3) never threatened and are looking for their first win. Jackson State lost to Division II Tuskegee, 33-7, last week.
Jordan Williams had 131 yards passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions for Jackson State.
