Texas Southern drops tough SWAC matchup against Jackson State

HOUSTON, Texas -- Texas Southern coach Michael Haywood said he saw the Tigers' loss on Saturday to Jackson State coming. He felt the Tigers hadn't prepared properly during the week to come away with a win.

Haywood was proved to be right.

A final drive by Texas Southern netted nine first downs, counting two pass interference calls on Jackson State, but the series ended with Averion Hurts throwing an interception at the 1-yard line and TSU came up short. Again.

Jackson State held off the Tigers 21-13 at BBVA Compass Stadium, handing the Tigers their fourth loss in seven games. Saturday's eight-point margin of defeat is TSU's largest of the season.
