LORMAN, Miss.- The Texas Southern Tigers Football team dropped a 27-15 road decision to the Alcorn State Braves at Spinks-Casem Stadium on Saturday.
After falling behind 27-0 in the first half of play Texas Southern was able to hold the Braves scoreless in the second half but the Tigers weren't able to generate enough offensive production to mount a comeback.

TSU scored 15 second half points as Bobby Hartzog hauled in two receiving touchdowns of 23 and 16 yards respectively.

Alcorn State's scoring production was a mixture of scores via the ground and passing attack as the Braves initially scored on a 1-yard rush, followed by an 8-yard pass in the first quarter.

The Braves added two more touchdowns in the 2nd quarter on another 1-yard run and a 28-yard catch with 5:57 remaining prior to intermission.

For the game Alcorn State amassed 477 yards of total offense (166 R, 311 P) while Texas Southern tallied 294 yards of offense (0 R, 294 P).

The Tigers will now get set to face the University of Houston on Saturday, Sept. 22 at TDECU Stadium.
