HOUSTON -- Greg Dillon threw for a touchdown and ran for one, and Grambling State scored three defensive touchdowns Thursday night in a 33-7 victory over Texas Southern.

The Tigers trailed 7-6 before Charles Gamble returned a fumble 50 yards for a score with 22 seconds left in the first half.

After Dillon's 18-yard touchdown pass to Kiare Thompson gave Grambling a 19-7 lead through three quarters, Christian Anthony intercepted a pass and returned it 12 yards for a score before the Tigers added a final TD on a fumble return.
