Alcorn State dominates Edward Waters 63-12

Associated Press

LORMAN, Miss. -- Arnold Walker scored three touchdowns as Alcorn State dominated Edward Waters 63-12 in the season opener for both teams on Saturday.

Walker's three scores came on just 75 yards rushing, but three other Braves rushed for at least 50 yards as ground attack piled up 280 yards.

The contest got away from Edward Waters early and Alcorn State won back-to-back home openers for the first time since 2003-2004.

The Tigers countered Alcorn's first touchdown with a field goal before Walker scored two rushing touchdowns less than three minutes apart to give the Braves a double-digit lead.

Alcorn's defense shut down Edward Waters, recovering three fumbles and tallying two interceptions. The only scoring for Edward Waters came on four field goals.
