NORMAL, Ala. -- John Gibbs threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Tavoris Doss in the third quarter and Alcorn State forced a turnover on downs on Alabama A&M's final possession, sealing a 21-20 win on Saturday.

The 17-yard, Gibbs-to-Doss connection put the Braves (3-4, 3-2 Southwestern Athletic Conference) up 21-17 with 5:30 left in the third quarter. Chance Wilson kicked a 39-yard field goal to pull the Bulldogs within one point with less than six minutes remaining in the fourth, and they got the ball back with 4:04 left.

Alabama A&M (6-1, 5-1) drove into Alcorn State territory, getting a first-and-10 at the Braves' 41, but had a pass completion for minus-4 yards and then sack for minus-2 on fourth-and-15 to turn it over on downs. The Braves then ran the final minute out, collecting the win.

Devon Francois had a 66-yard interception return for a touchdown for Alcorn State just before halftime.
