ITTA BENA, Miss. — After being outscored 86-26 in the first halves of three games this season, Southern was able to reverse its early game struggles Saturday.
The Southern defense held strong in the first half of Saturday’s contest.
Twice, the Delta Devils drove inside the Jaguars’ 10 only to be denied points.
Valley attempted a fake field goal on its first opportunity and missed a 26-yard field goal on the second.
Southern held Valley to no points on 150 total yards in the first half.
The “Human Jukebox,” Southern’s marching band, did not travel to Mississippi Valley State for Saturday’s game because of financial reasons, according to Southern sports information director Chris Jones.
Southern senior wide receiver Lee Doss showed last week why he is considered one of the better receivers in the SWAC.
Doss hauled in nine passes for a career high 214 yards in the epic come-from-behind victory against Prairie View, a 62-59 victory that took double overtime.
Saturday, Doss pulled in 10 passes for 164 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown catch to put the finishing touches the win.
