JACKSON, Miss. -- Leland Baker's interception with 9 seconds left was the eighth turnover forced by Alabama State and sealed a 21-14 win over Jackson State on Saturday.

Alabama State then went up 21-7 after Kejuan Riley's second interception of the game set up a 10-play, 56-yard scoring drive. Quendarius McKibbens capped the drive on a 4-yard touchdown run with 3:31 to play.
Jackson State (3-1, 1-1) made it 21-14 on Casey Therriault's 25-yard score to Marcellous Wider early in the fourth quarter, but it was too late to overcome the giveaways.
