LORMAN, Miss. (WLOX) - Felix Harper’s touchdown run to cap a 92-yard scoring drive was the difference, as Alcorn State defeated Northwestern State for its first win of the season.

Harper, the 2019 SWAC Offensive Player of the Year, completed a 50-yard pass to Manny Jones on third down and 10 earlier in the drive to eventually set up the game-winning score.

“It was big, it was third down and long, coach Mac was like, ‘we got to get this first down,’ so I cheered up my guys, we came together, stood up and made a play,” Harper said. “Appreciate my offensive line for letting me get the ball to that receiver, Manny, and we came up together and finished.”
