ITTA BENA, Miss. -- Darryl Pearson ran for a touchdown, Hunter Hanson kicked three field goals, and Alabama State held Mississippi Valley State to 11 yards rushing to win 16-10 on Saturday.

Hanson kicked field goals of 48 and 40 yards and the Hornets (4-6, 3-3 Southland) led 13-3 at halftime. He added a 39-yarder in the third quarter.

The Hornets held the Delta Devils (2-9, 1-6) to 179 yards of total offense and 6 of 16 third-down conversions. Ronnie Scott intercepted a pass by Jett Even and the defense got four sacks.

Even hit Quinn McElfresh on a 19-yard pass in the fourth quarter for MVSU's only TD. Nicholas Jacque kicked a 29-yard field goal.
