Grambling ends skid with 35-6 drubbing of Alcorn State
GRAMBLING, La. (AP) — Maurice Washington led a committee of running backs with 69 yards and a touchdown and Grambling beat Alcorn State 35-6 on Saturday.
Washington, Floyd Chalk IV and Chance Williams were part of a ground attack in which each reached the end zone. Quarterback Julian Calvez also ran one in.
Defensively, Myron Stewart’s 68-yard, pick-6 of Aaron Allen gave the Tigers a 21-0 lead en route to a 28-point halftime advantage.
Tre Lawrence threw a 4-yard score to Tavarious Griffin with 19 seconds left in the third for Alcorn State’s lone score.
The win ended a five-game losing streak for Grambling (2-6, 1-4 Southwestern Athletic Conference). The skid was the Tigers’ longest losing streak since dropping eight straight in their 1-11 campaign in 2013.
Alcorn State (3-5, 2-3) has dropped three consecutive following a three-game win streak.
