DALLAS -- A 75-yard kickoff return helped Prairie View win its first game of the season Saturday night, defeating Grambling State 31-14 at The State Fair Classic at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

Johnta' Herbert scored a touchdown after a 75-yard kickoff return in the first quarter. He also scored after catching a 41-yard pass from Jerry Lovelocke. Later, Lovelocke kept the ball for a 1-yard run and Courtney Brown added a touchdown after a 45-yard run.

The Panthers are now 1-5 overall and 1/3 in the SWAC.
