Ark.-Pine Bluff 21, Alcorn St. 3

LORMAN, Miss. (AP) -- Chris Wallace and Jonathan Moore each threw for a touchdown Thursday night and Martel Mallett ran for a third score as Arkansas-Pine Bluff ground out a 21-3 victory over Alcorn State.

Moore and Wallace combined for an unspectacular 13-for-28 passing record -- Wallace 8-for-18 for 67 yards and Moore 5-for-10 for 64 yards -- but neither threw an interception.

But two of Alcorn starter Christopher Walker's passes were snared by UAPB defenders. Walker also got only spotty protection from his line, suffering a total of 29 yards in losses when he couldn't get a pass off.

Mallett led all rushers with 70 yards on 20 carries.

UAPB's Jason Jones scored the first TD on a 21-yard pass play from Wallace with 4:29 left in the first half. Jones led the Golden Lions' receivers with five catches for 51 yards.

Alcorn made it 7-3 on Alexander Oelfke's 19-yard field foal midway through the third period, but the Golden Lions answered with another touchdown just 3 minutes later, when Moore connected with Demetri Beverly from 13 yards out.

Martel completed the scoring with a 5-yard run to the end zone with 1:39 on the clock.
