Texas Southern 38, MVSU 7

HOUSTON -- Texas Southern held Mississippi Valley State to 109 yards of total offense Saturday en route to a 38-7 victory.

Arvell Nelson threw two touchdowns and ran for another for the Tigers (5-3, 5-1 Southwestern Athletic), who have won four straight.

MVSU (0-8, 0-7) came up with an interception on Texas Southern's opening possession, then scored on its first play from scrimmage when Oliver Hughes hit Paul Cox for a 37-yard touchdown pass. But that was it for the Delta Devils, who had only 38 yards rushing in the game. Hughes completed 6 of 22 passes for 71 yards and was sacked four times.

Nelson finished with 218 yards passing, completing 14 of 19 passes, and also rushed for 65. Marcus Wright added 131 yards rushing, including a 3-yard touchdown run with 36 seconds left in the first half that put Texas Southern on top, 24-7.
