LORMAN, Miss. (AP) -- Ben Boyd rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown as Prairie View A&M beat Alcorn State 17-7 on Saturday.

Boyd scored on a 23-yard run to tie the score 7-7 early in the third quarter and also set up Brady Faggard's 24-yard game-clinching field goal with a 79-yard run late in the fourth-quarter.

Boyd averaged 20.6 yards per carry.

Alcorn State's Nate Hughes gave the Braves a 7-0 halftime lead with a 70-yard punt return for a touchdown.

But Donald Babers gave Prairie View a 14-7 lead with a 1-yard touchdown run with 2 minutes left in the third to help the Aggies pull away.
