MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Alabama State outplayed Grambling State in virtually every offensive category and beat the Tigers 31-17 in a Southwestern Athletic Conference game Saturday night.

The Hornets (1-1, 1-0) also forced four Grambling turnovers (including three interceptions) and held the Tigers (1-1, 1-0) to just 177 yards total offense. Quarterback Devin Dominguez hit Nick Andrews for a 50-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. Andrews later caught a 15-yard scoring pass from backup quarterback Gregory Jenkins to give Alabama State a 17-10 lead it never relinquished.

That was the first of three unanswered touchdowns by the Hornets. Jenkins later scored on a 16-yard run in the fourth quarter and Quendarius McKibbens closed the Alabama State scoring with a 3-yard run.

Freshman quarterback D.J. Williams passed for 113 yards and two touchdowns for Grambling, but that wasn't nearly enough.
