ITTA BENA, Miss. (AP) -Abner Brown caught a game-clinching 15-yard touchdown pass and Mississippi Valley State upset Arkansas-Pine Bluff 16-9 on Saturday.
Brown caught eight passes - five more than any other player in the game - for 87 yards and put the Delta Devils (1-0) up 16-3 on a pass from Paul Roberts with 3 seconds left in the first half.
The Golden Lions (0-1), the Southwestern Athletic Conference runner-up last year, gained more yards than the Delta Devils and held the ball for 5 minutes longer.
But MVSU jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter on Ronald Brewer's 2-yard touchdown run and Zack Gilarski's 42-yard field goal, and Arkansas-Pine Bluff couldn't rally.
The Golden Lions' John Heflin hit a 22-yard field goal in the second quarter, but missed an extra point after Kenneth Esaw's 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
