There are still some things that need to be settled in the SWAC West division.
Prairie View A&M had a chance to clinch the title with a win over the 1-9 Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils.
The Panthers lost 27-7.
As a result of Prairie View’s loss, Texas Southern then had temporary control of the West needing a win over Alabama A&M to secure the division.
Despite leading 20-3 with 13:29 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Tigers allowed 21 unanswered points culminated by a 38-yard touchdown run by Bulldogs quarterback Xavier Langford to fall 24-20.
Alcorn State had a chance to keep themselves alive in the SWAC West race despite longshot odds needing a win over Jackson State to do so. That plan fell through as the Braves lost 24-13.
Southern will have their chance to claim the division championship at the Bayou Classic against Grambling.
Should they lose, Prairie View A&M will win the division for a second straight season.
