BATON ROUGE - Southern perservered through a near-two hour weather delay, referees leaving the field calling victory for Alabama A&M, and a blocked field goal in the first overtime period to take a victory from the Bulldogs 20-17.

At the end of regulation, the Jaguars thought they lost the game when the referees ran outside the stadium because quarterback Dray Joseph committed intentional grounding with :07 left(leading to a 10-second clock runoff of the rest of the game).

However, due to a rule, Southern had a timeout remaining to avoid the clock runoff.

The referees came back on the field, senior kicker Matt Hill hit a 37-yard field goal, and the two teams went to overtime.

In overtime, Southern had their kick blocked, but the Jags recovered a fumble as the Bulldogs tried to get into field goal range - sending it to a second overtime.

In the second overtime, the Bulldogs missed their field goal attempt and Matt Hill hit his second 37-yard field goal of the night to claim victory for Southern.
