Grambling State (2-4, 1-2) closed the gap on its first offensive series as the Tigers marched 47 yards in seven plays as Garrett Urban booted a season-long and career-long 45-yard field goal to trim the deficit to 7-3 with 10:57 left in the quarter.

The Braves took advantage of a blocked punt and excellent field position as Harper rushed 14 yards up the middle and into the endzone, extending Alcorn State’s lead to 14-3 with 6:43 remaining in the opening frame.
