HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Kevin Atkins threw for 204 yards and a touchdowns to help Alabama A&M beat Alcorn State 20-13 on Saturday night.
The Braves (2-6, 1-2 Southwestern Athletic Conference) took a 7-3 lead in the second quarter when Edward Johnson caught a 19-yard touchdown pass from Tim Buckley, who finished with 236 yards passing and two interceptions. Johnson Edwards had five catches for 101 yards.
But the Bulldogs (3-5, 2-1) regained the lead for good in the second quarter after Atkins threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Thomas Harris, who had eight catches for 94 yards. Alabama A&M later pushed its lead to 20-7 in the third on Nate Baxter's 23-yard touchdown catch from Darian Payne.
The rain never quit and the temperatures on the field never rose above 45 degrees. So what better time for Brandon Allen to give his arm a rest and take a back seat to the running game?
