The offense was driving and moving the ball, when running back Sylvester Nzekwe failed to convert a third and one with a cut toward the endzone, instead his lateral movement on the line resulted in a tackle for a loss, and the Panthers took over.
Prairie View marched 75 yards in eleven plays, aided by a 36 yard scramble by Smiley down to the Southern one yard line. Two plays later, running back Courtney Brown leaped up and over the line for the second touchdown of the game giving the Panthers a 14-3 lead.
