DALLAS -- A 75-yard kickoff return helped Prairie View win its first game of the season Saturday night, defeating Grambling State 31-14 at The State Fair Classic at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

Johnta' Herbert scored a touchdown after a 75-yard kickoff return in the first quarter. He also scored after catching a 41-yard pass from Jerry Lovelocke. Later, Lovelocke kept the ball for a 1-yard run and Courtney Brown added a touchdown after a 45-yard run.

The Panthers are now 1-5 overall and 1/3 in the SWAC.

For the Tigers (0-5, 0-4 SWAC), their scoring came on the ground as Cedric Skinner scored on a 2-yard run and D. J. Williams on a 19-yard run. Following both, the kicks by Angelo Eave were good.

Prairie View defeated Grambling in last season's State Fair Classic. The last time Prairie View beat Grambling in consecutive seasons was in 1963 and 1964.
