The Deion Sanders era began as expected.
Jackson State, donning all-red uniforms, racked up more than 400 yards of total offense and was equally impressive on defense in a 53-0 win over Edward Waters Sunday afternoon.
JSU quarterback Jalon Jones went 16-of-18 for 151 yards and accounted for three touchdowns in one half of work.
Redshirt senior Warren Newman scored the first touchdown of the 2021 spring season with a 10-yard reception on the Tigers’ first drive. He was named offensive player of the game.
Jackson State eventually jumped out to a 31-0 lead at halftime en route to its largest margin of victory since 2014.
