Tigers seek their own Homecoming victory
TSU used all three phases of football to earn its first win over Alcorn State since 2011 and first in Spinks-Casem Stadium since 2010 as they spoiled another homecoming by a 34-27 margin. The Tigers improved to 3-2 in SWAC play as they return home for a non-conference Homecoming contest versus Lincoln (CA) University. The game kicks off at 2 p.m. on Saturday at Durley Stadium. Punt returner Chaunzavia Lewis set the Tigers up early as he picked up a punt near his own endzone and found a seam for a 49-yard return to the Alcorn State 44. The offense rewarded him for his efforts as Andrew Body had a big 18-yard run on third down, which set up an 18-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Bennett. Curtis Falkenburg nailed the PAT as the Tigers claimed an early 7-0 lead.For more details on the victory over Alcorn State, click here.
