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

The NCAA announced two rule changes this past April, and both were met with plenty of vitriol. The one that resounded the most in the immediate aftermath was the decision to ban satellite camps, which was hit with such backlash that it was soon overturned and satellite camps were reinstated.
