JACKSON, Miss. -- Casey Therriault threw five touchdown passes, including a 28-yarder to Rick Richardson with 2 seconds left, as Jackson State outlasted Southern University 49-45 in a wild Southwestern Athletic Conference finish Saturday night.

With the Tigers (5-1, 3-1) leading 34-31 with 4:15 remaining, the Jaguars (2-4, 1-3) stopped them on three plays, taking a 38-34 lead on Reed Wilson's 60-yard punt return with 2:59 left.

After Jackson State reached the Southern 5, Therriault threw incomplete on third down, but pass interference created first-and-goal at the 2. B.J. Lee ran it in for a 41-38 Tigers lead at 0:38.

On Southern's next scrimmage play, Jeremiah McGinty hit Wilson for a 73-yard touchdown and a 45-41 Jaguars lead with 19 seconds left.

Jackson State got the ball at its 36. An offside penalty and Therriault's 31-yard pass to Renty Rollins set up the game-winner and a 2-point conversion.
