PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) - A 32-yard field goal by John Heflin as time expired gave Arkansas-Pine Bluff a 23-21 victory Saturday over Southern University.
UAPB (3-7, 3-5 Southwestern Athletic Conference) jumped out to a 20-0 lead early in the second quarter after a 62-yard pass play from Chris Wallace to Jason Jones and two running TDs by Mickey Dean, one from 2 yards out, the other from the 3. Heflin's point-after kick on Dean's first TD was blocked by the Jaguars.
But Southern (7-3, 5-3) then scored three touchdowns of its own. Garard Landry took a 4-yard pass from Bryant Lee, Lee threw another scoring pass to Albert Turner from 40 yards out, and he threw for another TD to Juamorr Stewart from the 16. The Jaguars made all the extra points to take a 21-20 lead with 1:05 left in the game.
UAPB took seven plays to cover 60 yards in the game's final minute to get within range of Heflin's leg for the winning kick.
Lee was 31-of-40 for the night, with no interceptions, for 373 yards. UAPB's Wallace went 16-for-21 but was intercepted twice
