LORMAN, Miss. – Alcorn State lost a one-point game to Alabama A&M, which ultimately kept the Braves out of the 2013 SWAC Football Championship game.

On Saturday, the Braves  secured a second straight appearance in the conference title game after defeating Alabama A&M 44-10.

The Braves struck first on a 30-yard  Lenorris Footman touchdown pass to Marquis Warford in the first quarter to give them a 7-0 lead.

In the second quarter, Warford scored his second touchdown of the game on a 35-yard run to put the Braves up by 14. The Bulldogs got on the board with a 32-yard field goal, but their success was short-lived.

A few possessions later, Darryan Ragsdale found an opening in the Bulldog defense and raced for a 75-yard score, giving the Braves a 20-3 lead.

After a 25-yard field goal by the Braves’ Haiden McCraney, De’Angelo Ballard rushed for a 13-yard touchdown for the Bulldogs in the fourth quarter that made the score 44-10, which would be the game final.

The Braves set a school record for rushing yards in a game with 500. Warford would finish the game with 118 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
