Davis throws two TD passes at Johnson, helping Alabama State beat Southern 14-10


MONTGOMERY, Alabama (AP) — Dematrius Davis’ two touchdown passes to Kisean Johnson, who caught nine passes for 103 yards, helped Alabama State beat Southern 14-10 on Saturday.

Southern’s Harold Blood’s Treqwan Thomas’ strip sack was recovered by Roderick Daniels and the Hornets’ offense took possession deep in Jaguars’ territory. After an incomplete pass on the first-and-10, Davis threw a short pass down the middle to Johnson for a 17-yard catch-and-run touchdown that made it 14-10 with 5:42 left in the third quarter. Southern’s offense crossed midfield just once in the rest of the game, and that drive ended when Alabama State’s Stefon Young-Rolle redeemed a fumble from Kedric Rhymes on the 42nd line.

Blood was 17 of 34 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown — a 16-yarder for Rhymes that capped an opening 14-game, 77-yard drive — with two interceptions.

Johnson caught a screen pass and ran 43 yards for a touchdown to make it 7-7. Five minutes later, Joshu Griffin fired a 40-yard field goal early in the second quarter to put Southern (0-1, 0-1 Southwestern Athletic Conference) ahead.

Alabama State (1-0, 1-0) forced the Jaguars to lose five turnovers in the second half, including one loss on downs.
