HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Deaunte Mason tossed three touchdown passes and ran for three more as Alabama A&M rallied to topple Prairie View A&M 42-30 in Southwestern Athletic Conference action Saturday night.
Mason was a part of every Bulldog score, with none more important than the final two. His 4-yard TD pass to Bobby Goldsby with 5:45 to play leapfrogged Alabama A&M (3-0, 2-0 SWAC) to a 35-30 lead, and his 7-yard run two minutes later put the game on ice.
The Panthers (0-3, 0-2) broke a 21-21 halftime tie on Christopher Barrick's 28-yard field goal in the third, but fell behind when Mason scored from 2-yards out. Prairie View A&M retook the lead on consecutive field goals from Barrick, setting the score at 30-28 before Mason spearheaded the final comeback.
The Panthers' De'Auntre Smith accounted for 113 yards and a TD on 13 rushes.

Les Miles might have his best collection of secondary talent at LSU and that's saying a lot; Alabama and Florida boast talent on the back end, too.
Ezekiel Elliott steps into a great situation with Dallas, and Jack Conklin and Taylor Decker should be NFL OL starters for years.
Although coach Matt Campbell's depth chart remains a bit fluid, the Cyclones have the makings of a pretty good defense.
Look for defensive tackle Lowell Lotulelei and safety Marcus Williams to play key roles again for the Utes.
The Mountaineers have enough experience and quality depth throughout their offense to be Big 12 contenders.
