Mark Spivey threw four touchdowns and Chris Adingupu intercepted a pass late to help Prairie View A&M beat Jackson State 30-27, giving the Panthers their first winning season in more than 30 years.
Prairie View A&M (6-3, 5-3 SWAC) hasn't been better than .500 since 1976. The Panthers lost an NCAA-record 80 in a row in the 1990s.
Jackson State (6-4, 6-2) got within 30-27 on Cody Hull's 4-yard touchdown run with 5:15 left.
The Tigers had a chance to tie or win on their final drive, and had the ball near midfield with two minutes left.
But Adingupu intercepted a Trae Rutland pass at the Prairie View 41 with 1:11 left. The Panthers ran out the clock to clinch the win.
Spivey was 8-of-19 for 180 yards, but half of his completions went for scores as Prairie View A&M rallied from an early 11-point deficit.
But he threw for three TDs in the second quarter to give the Panthers a 23-13 cushion at halftime.
Spivey added a 64-yard TD pass to Joe Townsend in the fourth to put Prairie View on top 30-20 with 14:36 left.
Jackson State's Jimmy Oliver threw for 296 yards and three touchdowns. Jaymar Johnson had two TD receptions.
