BATON ROUTE, La. (AP) - Austin Howard passed for 312 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two more to lead Southern to a 46-7 win over Alabama A&M on Saturday.

The Jaguars (6-4, 6-2 Southwestern Conference) led 39-7 at halftime and finished with 631 yards and 34 first downs, while holding the Bulldogs (2-7, 2-5) to 110 yards and 11 first downs.

Malcom Crockett also had two scores while gaining 99 yards and Lenard Tillery had 127 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries.

Alabama A&M quarterbacks combined for just 4 completions on 12 attempts but Damion May had an 11-yard scoring pass to Jonathan Dorsey early in the second quarter to make it 13-7.

But Howard hit Randall Menard for 23- and 21-yard scores sandwiched around Crockett's 3-yard run and Tilliman's 39-yard score on the next four possessions before halftime.
