Weekend of Oct. 11-13

Alcorn State Shuts Down Deaunte Mason To Upset Undefeated Alabama A&M

      Alcorn State's defense held Alabama A&M star quarterback Deaunte Mason in check and spoiled A&M's homecoming with a 21-10 upset of the previously undefeated Bulldogs.
       Mason, who had scored at least two touchdowns passing and running in each of the last four games, only mustered one TD pass, had 158 yards in the air and threw his first two interceptions of the season.  Alcorn State (3-4, 3-2) was outgained 406 yards to 211, but avoid giving up big plays to  Alabama A&M (6-1, 5-1).
       A&M running back Kaderius Lacey scored the Bulldogs other touchdown and became the school's all-time rushing leader 205 yards on the day.

Trabis Ward's Four TD's Lead Undefeated TSU Over Southeast Missouri State

Running back Trabis Ward rushed for 267 yards and four touchdowns to power undefeated and 18th ranked Tennessee State to a 40-28 win over Southeast Missouri State.
    Ward had touchdown runs of 7, 4, 1 and 30 as he helped the Tigers (7-0, 3-0) fend off a game Southeast Missouri State (2-4, 1-2) team.  Ward's 267 yards on the ground for the game was the second-most in TSU history.  Charles Anthony rushed for 285 against Samford in 2004.
     Tennessee State is now only four FCS (Football Championship Series, which is the former Division I-AA) teams to remain undefeated so far this season.  The others are Harvard, Lehigh, Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo and Lehigh.

     Kameron Smith shook off a fumble and an interception to pass for 347 yards and three touchdown to lead Winston Salem State to a 56-37 victory over St. Augustine's.
     St. Augustine's (4-3, 2-2) came in looking to slow down a Rams team that has stormed through their CIAA schedule so far this season.  That did not happen Saturday.
     Smith's first two possessions resulted in turnovers, including a recovery of his fumble that was run back for a Falcons touchdown and their only lead of the game.   But Smith, one of Division II's top quarterbacks, settled down to have another big day to lead the Rams (7-0, 4-0) to another easy victory.
