LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Austin Howard threw for 245 yards and five touchdowns, Southern University converted an interception into a score, and the Jaguars held off the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff 47-40 on Saturday.
Trailing 47-32, Brandon Duncan hit Jeremy Brown on a 10-yard TD pass with 13 seconds left to pull the Golden Lions to within 47-40 after the two-point conversion, but Southern recovered the onside kick and time expired.
Both teams scored on their first two possessions, and Howard's 7-yard TD pass to Dillon Beard in the first quarter gave the Jaguars (5-3, 3-1 Southwestern Athletic Conference) a lead they wouldn't relinquish.
UAPB (2-6, 1-3) rallied with 10 unanswered third-quarter points, but Howard hit Beard on a 7-yard TD pass and Devon Benn added a 46-yard scoring run for a 47-32 lead.
