JACKSON, MS (AP) - Casey Therriault threw for 291 yards and a touchdown as Jackson State beat Prairie View A&M 30-13 in a Southwestern Athletic Conference game Saturday night.

Therriault, who leads Football Championship Subdivision passers with 335 yards per game, gave the Tigers (6-2, 4-2) a 7-0 lead with a 10-yard pass to Marcellos Wilder. He completed 27 of 39.

With Jackson State leading 14-3 at halftime, Kyle Mathews kicked his second field goal for the Panthers (5-4, 4-3), a 25-yarder, after Michael Benson returned the second-half kickoff 63 yards.

A Tigers safety made it 16-6 when Milton Patterson stopped Donald Babers in the end zone.

After Jackson State broke it open with 1-yard scoring runs in the fourth quarter by Therriault and B.J. Lee to lead 30-6, the Panthers got their only touchdown when Quinton Spears blocked a punt and Adrian Hamilton recovered it for the score.
