Southern wins in Double Overtime 62-59
The Southern Jaguars won their first game of the season in tremendous fashion, pushing Prairie View to double overtime before taking the 62-59 win at Mumford Stadium.
Lee Doss caught the touchdown catch in the second frame of extra play giving the Jaguars the win after the Panthers had to settle for a field goal.
After being embarrassed badly in their first two games, the Jaguars desperately needed to win one to get back any kind of momentum heading into SWAC play.
Jaguar quarterback Dray Joseph finished the game with 30 completions on 48 attempts for 480 yards and six touchdowns.
Most importantly he did not have an interception.
Tailback Leonard Tillery rushed for three touchdowns.
