Southern smacked by Alcorn State 56-16
LORMAN, MS - Alcorn State got a big win over Southern, as the Braves beat the Jaguars 56-16.

The Jaguars started with the first score of the game, as Austin Howard found Justin Morgan on a 51 yard touchdown pass to make the score 7-0.
After that, though, it was all Braves as Alcorn scored four consecutive touchdowns to make the score 28-7 in the 2nd quarter.
The Jags scored a field goal and a touchdown, respectively, to cut the Braves lead to 28-16 at the half, but the Braves scored 3 more touchdowns to put the game out of reach.
