JACKSON, Mississippi — La Montiez Ivy completed 22 of 27 passes for 370 yards and three touchdowns, and Teddrick Terrell had a sack in the closing seconds to help Jackson State beat Texas Southern 34-30 on Saturday night.
Devin Fosselman and Dan Williams each had six receptions and a touchdown. Fosselman finished with 129 yards receiving and Williams added 124 for Jackson State (1-3, 1-1 Southwestern Athletic Conference).
Ivy connected with Fosselman on a 30-yard touchdown pass, on third-and-10, to give the Jackson State a 34-24 lead with 4:17 left.
Texas Southern (2-2, 1-2) answered with a five-play, 57-yard drive — during which Averion Hurts either passed or ran on every play — that was capped by a 10-yard scoring pass to Derrick Griffin with 2:40 to play, but the PAT attempt by Eric Medina was blocked by Brandon Maiden.
Jackson State went three-and-out, but Texas Southern had just 32 seconds and no time outs and Terrell's sack sealed it.
