Abner Brown caught a game-clinching 15-yard touchdown pass and Mississippi Valley State upset Arkansas-Pine Bluff 16-9 today.

Brown caught eight passes -- five more than any other player in the game -- for 87 yards and put the Delta Devils up 16-3 on a pass from Paul Roberts with 3 seconds left in the first half.

The Golden Lions, the Southwestern Athletic Conference runner-up last year, gained more yards than the Delta Devils and held the ball 5 minutes longer.

But MVSU jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter on Ronald Brewer's 2-yard touchdown run and Zack Gilarski's 42-yard field goal, and Arkansas-Pine Bluff couldn't rally.

The Golden Lions' John Heflin hit a 22-yard field goal in the second quarter, but missed an extra point after Kenneth Esaw's 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
