Southern wins 2OT thriller 20-17 over Alabama A&M

Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Matthew Hill made two 37-yard field goals, one to tie the game and one to win it, as Southern beat Alabama A&M 20-17 in double overtime on Saturday night.

A 90-minute lightning delay with 3:27 remaining in regulation set up the roller coaster conclusion.

When play resumed, Alabama A&M faced a third-and-one on the Southern 27 down 14-10. The Bulldogs went ahead on Brandon Wells' 4-yard pass to Toriono Upshaw with 49 seconds to go.

Southern (3-3, 3-1 Southwestern Athletic Conference) quickly responded, driving to the Alabama A&M 5. An intentional grounding penalty set up Hill's first field goal to tie the game at 17 as time expired.

Hill missed his next attempt in the first possession of overtime, but the Bulldogs (2-5, 2-3) fumbled and the Jaguars recovered to end the first overtime.

Caesar Ramon missed from 37 and Hill redeemed himself with the game winner in second overtime.
