SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Bobby Reid ran for two touchdowns and threw for another score to lead Texas Southern over Shaw 40-29 at the first-ever Capital City Football Classic on Saturday.

Reid, who transferred from Oklahoma State, threw for 211 yards and one TD and rushed for 59 yards and two scores to give the Tigers (1-2) their fifth win in four years and first victory since the 2006 season.

Johnny Wooten ran for 94 yards and two touchdowns for the Division II Shaw Bears (0-3), who have yet to play a home game.

The Bears got off to a 10-0 start in the first quarter on a 43-yard field goal by Lincoln Shepherd and a 21-yard touchdown run by Johnny Wooten. TSU finally scored its first points in the first quarter this season on a 24-yard field goal by Robert Hersh.

The Tigers began to make some strides in the second quarter that turned their fortunes around for good. Down 13-3, the Tigers came back to take a brief 17-16 lead on Bobby Reid 2-yard TD run. Shaw managed to take a halftime 22-16 margin after Marcus Brooks found DeAndre Okanji for a 35-yard TD pass.

Behind 29-27, the Tigers took command in the third quarter when Reid tossed a 6-yard strike to Roland Robins, followed by a 4-yard run by the quarterback with six seconds left in the period that ended all scoring in the game.
