MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Ryan Deising's 39-yard field goal as time expired gave Jackson State a 37-34 victory over Alabama State Saturday in a Southwestern Athletic Conference thriller.

Deising, who missed an earlier field goal attempt, kicked the game-winner for the Tigers (3-4, 3-2). Clayton Moore passed for 269 yards and two scores and ran for 131 yards and three more touchdowns.

Moore's touchdown runs of 32 and 6 yards gave Jackson State a 13-7 lead until Brandon Slater intercepted a Moore pass and returned it 23 yards for an Alabama State (4-3, 4-2) touchdown. Then, Hornets' quarterback Greg Jenkins, whose 6-yard pass to T.C. McWilliams opened the scoring, scored from the 6 himself.

Moore replied with touchdown passes to Zachary Pendleton and Rico Richardson. Isaiah Crowell's two short fourth-quarter scores put the Hornets up 34-27.

Moore's 3-yard touchdown tied it with 3:53 left, and Deising's kick won it as time expired.
