HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Christian Jacquemin kicked a 26-yard field goal as time expired to give Jackson State a 10-7 victory that spoiled Alabama A&M’s hopes for an undefeated home slate Saturday.

The Tigers tailed 7-0 going into the fourth quarter, but Andre Lloyd picked off an Aqeel Glass pass to give Jackson State the ball at the Bulldogs’ 46 and nine plays later, the Tigers were in the end zone on a Jordan Johnson 2-yard run.

Jackson State (2-8, 2-6 SWAC) picked off Glass again with 2:42 left in the game, taking possession at its own 25 and driving 66 yards in eight plays to set up the game-winning field goal.

Alabama A&M (3-7, 3-3) held Jackson State to just 252 yards of total offense while the Tigers held the Bulldogs to just 273.

It was Jackson State’s first win over Alabama A&M since James Spady became the Bulldogs’ head coach in 2014.
