Sam Houston St. 24, Texas Southern 13
HOUSTON (AP) _ Trey Woods, Sam Houston State’s career blocked kicks leader, stuffed a Texas Southern punt early in the fourth quarter and returned it 22 yards for a touchdown to spark a 24-13 victory Saturday.
The teams went into the fourth quarter deadlocked at 7-7 when Marcus Hajdik drilled a 42-yard field goal to regain the lead for the Bearkats 11 seconds into the period.
Texas Southern (2-2), unable to get its offense going after the ensuing kickoff, tried to punt when Woods made his play.
After a TSU touchdown narrowed the margin to 17-13, Bennie Wylie dove in from a yard out with 5:20 left in the game to hold off the Tigers.
