Prairie View A&M rolls past Texas Southern 37-13

Associated Press

HOUSTON -- Prairie View A&M opened the season with a 37-13 victory over Texas Southern on Saturday night.

The Panthers broke open a close game with 17 unanswered points in the second half. Prairie View led 13-10 after the first quarter, but shut down the Tigers in the second half of the Southwestern Athletic Conference matchup.

It was a rough start to the season in conference play for Texas Southern, which won the SWAC title in 2010.

This year's blowout was a stark contrast to last year's contest between the two teams.

Texas Southern won last year's contest in the closing seconds of regulation.

Prairie View had tied the score at 41 with 1:16 remaining, but the Tigers still prevailed. Texas Southern leads the series 19-9. The Tigers were looking for their second straight win against the Panthers in the 29th Labor Day Classic.
