NATCHITOCHES, La. -- John Hundley threw for two touchdowns, including 17-yard TD pass to Gordon Freeman late in the fourth quarter, and ran for another score to lead Northwestern State to a 31-19 win Sunday over Grambling State.

Northwestern State (2-1) was leading 17-13 when Hundley connected on the touchdown to Freeman with three minutes left in the game.

Grambling State (1-2) answered with 1-yard TD run by quarterback J.P. Tillman with 2:33 remaining to cut the lead to 24-19 after a missed two-point conversion. Tillman, who also threw for a touchdown, finished with 169 yards passing.

Northwestern State put the game out of reach on William Griffin's 14-yard touchdown run with 26 seconds left in a game originally scheduled for Saturday. Officials moved kickoff back to Sunday due to Hurricane Ike.

Hundley was 11-for-20 passing for 157 yards. He threw a 31-yard TD pass for the game's opening score and had a 9-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
