Grambling State scores final 40 points, tops TSU 47-28

HOUSTON -- DeVante Kincade threw three touchdown passes, Jestin Kelly and Martez Carter each rushed for over 100 yards, and Grambling State ended the game on a 40-point run to beat Texas Southern 47-28 on Saturday night.

Grambling State (9-1, 8-0 SWAC), which has won 17 straight in conference, trailed 28-7 after Texas Southern scored three second-quarter touchdowns in less than three minutes.

But Kincade threw touchdown passes of 34 and 72 yards to Verlan Hunter in a 21-second span, pulling the Tigers to 28-21 and capping a run of four combined touchdowns in 53 seconds for both teams. Jonathan Wallace hit a pair of field goals, and Kincade threw his third TD pass to Dominique Leake with 11 seconds left in the half to give Grambling a 33-28 halftime lead.

Carter and Kelly each scored on TD runs in the second half to salt the game away.

Grambling State plays Southern (8-0 SWAC) on Nov. 26 in the 43rd Annual Bayou Classic to decide the SWAC's western division champion. The winner plays Alcorn State for the league title in Houston on Dec. 3.

Averion Hurts threw for 171 yards and two touchdowns for Texas Southern (4-7, 4-5).
