DALLAS (AP) -- Tim Manuel kicked a 19-yard field goal with 1:22 left to help Grambling State beat Prairie View A&M 17-14 Saturday night.

Grambling (3-1, 3-0 Southwestern Athletic Conference) set up the winning score with a 16-play, 76-yard drive that lasted 8:42.

The Tigers led 14-0 after three quarters, but Prairie View (2-2, 1-2) scored twice in 52 seconds to tie the game early in the fourth.

The Panthers had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds, but Nigel Copeland blocked Pedro Ventura's 57-yard attempt on the last play of the game.

Grambling's Cornelius Walker rushed for 109 yards, and Brandon Landers passed for 173 yards and a touchdown.

Clyde Edwards, who caught seven passes for 100 yards, hauled in a 41-yard TD from Landers that put the Tigers ahead 14-0 midway through the third.

Mark Spivey threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to Shaun Stephens that brought Prairie View within 14-7 with 11:02 remaining.

Less than a minute later, Gary Hicks intercepted a pass and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown.

Grambling then drove for the winning score by converting all three of its third down conversions on a 76-yard drive.

Walker's 23-yard run to the 3 set up Manuel's game-winning kick.
