Sanders' 31-yard touchdown pass to Shane Hooks snapped a 10-all tie in the final minute of the third quarter. Sanders' 2-yard TD to Corbin gave the Tigers insurance with 3:23 remaining in the game.

The Jackson State defense, which came in with an NCAA Division I-leading 44 sacks, added four more, two by James Houston.
