Tennessee State Tigers (4-7)


Tennessee State escapes Texas A&M-Commerce with a 22-14 win

COMMERCE, Texas (AP) Darius Harper picked off a pass on the first play from scrimmage and returned it 28 yards for a touchdown, then stripped receiver Andrew Armstrong of the ball in the back of the end zone on the game's final play to preserve Tennessee State's 22-14 win over Texas A&M-Commerce in the regular season finale for both schools Saturday.

Harper, the senior son of former Tennessee Titans cornerback Nick Harper, finished with two interceptions and recovered a fumble as the Tigers snapped a three-game losing streak.

The victory makes Tennessee State (4-7, 2-3 Ohio Valley) 9-13 in coach Eddie George's two seasons
