Cody Hull ran 9 yards for a touchdown with 1:09 left Saturday as Jackson State handed Arkansas-Pine Bluff its sixth straight loss with a 17-6 victory.

Hull's touchdown came after Daniel Brooks sacked Golden Lions quarterback Chris Wallace on a fourth down play with 1:13 left in the game. Wallace was sacked four times by the Tigers.

With the victory, Jackson State remains tied with Alabama A&M, a winner Saturday over Alabama State, for first place in the Southwestern Athletic Conference. The two teams play next week in Huntsville, Alabama.

A 1-yard touchdown by Erik Hawe in the second quarter put the Tigers ahead 7-0. John Helfin's 45-yard field goal for Arkansas-Pine Bluff cut the lead to 7-3 at the half.

Eric Perri kicked a 47-yard field goal in the fourth quarter and Jackson State lead 10-3.

The Golden Lions final score came on a 32-yard field goal by Helfin.
