Alcorn "Carries" Away Capital City Classic

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) _ Donald Carrie ran for three touchdowns and threw for three more as Alcorn State beat Jackson State 49-25 on Saturday. With the win, the Braves (7-5, 5-2 Southwestern Athletic Conference) ended an eight-game losing streak to the Tigers. Jackson State (2-10,2-5) closed its worst season in school history with seven straight losses under first-year coach James Bell. Carrie's 1-yard touchdown run with 6:56 to play in the first quarter gave Alcorn State an early 6-3 lead. David McConnell added a 36-yard field goal late in the quarter to put the Braves ahead 9-3. The Tigers took a 21-10 lead into halftime on an Andrew Burks 3-yard touchdown run and a 5-yard TD pass from Carrie to Tabari Lott. Carrie added two 1-yard touchdown runs in the third quarter and threw a 33-yard strike to Corvin Johnson for another score as Alcorn extended its lead to 42-17 after three quarters. ``This was a very big win for us,'' said Carrie. ``We had a good offensive game plan. Losing gets old. We had to come out here and put our foot down. We wanted to show them that we were the better team this year.'' Carrie finished 13-for-27 for 259 passing yards and ran for 44 yards. Alcorn State had not beaten Jackson State since 1994, when Steve McNair was the starter for the Braves.
