JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Brandon Landers passed for 348 yards and a touchdown and Tim Manuel kicked three field goals Saturday to lead Grambling State to a 30-20 victory over Jackson State and its fifth straight win.

Landers connected with Clyde Edwards for a 49-yard touchdown in the second quarter that put Grambling ahead 17-10. Jackson State tied the game at 17-17 three minutes later on a short run from Erik Haw.

Grambling (6-1, 6-0 Southwestern Athletic Conference) got a 25-yard field goal from Manuel with one second left in the first half to take the lead again.

Grambling's defense did the rest after the that, holding Jackson State (4-3,4-1) to just 25 yards rushing.

Grambling finished with 471 yards of total offense and remains the only SWAC team without a conference loss.

Jackson State's four-game winning streak was snapped and it was the Tigers' first conference loss of the season.
