Southern University Jaguars (4-6)


Sanders, Wideman help Jackson St. rally, beat Southern 21-17

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Shedeur Sanders threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to Malachi Wideman to help Jackson State beat Southern on Saturday night to clinch a berth in the SWAC Championship Game and end a 9-game losing streak against the Jaguars.

Jackson State (9-1, 7-0 Southwestern Athletic Conference) forced a punt and took possession near midfield with 7:34 to play and trailing 17-7. Sanders completed five passes on a six-play drive that culminated when Wideman caught a 13-yard TD less than two minutes later and, after Southern (4-6, 3-4) went three-and-out, Sanders was sacked for a 12-yard loss and the Tigers were penalized for a false start and a delay of game before Wideman caught a 50-yard touchdown pass from Sanders to make it 21-17 with 1:42 remaining.

Jackson State - which clinched the East Division title, its first title since 2013 - closes the regular season at home against Alcorn State next Saturday and will host the SWAC Championship Game on Dec. 4.
