LORMAN, Mississippi -- WHAT WE LEARNED
Alcorn State is no longer Southern kryptonite. The Jaguars snapped a five-game losing streak in fairly convincing fashion Saturday.

How about Lenard Tillery? Southern’s standout running back nearly set a career high in rushing on the day he broke the SWAC rushing record. Saturday marked the fourth time this season that he had at least 120 rushing yards by the end of the third quarter. Tillery is special, and he plays at home two more times ever. Hint, hint.
