ITTA BENA, Miss. -- Garrick Jones ran for first-half touchdowns of 70 and 43 yards, and Marcus Randle threw three second-half touchdown passes to lead Mississippi Valley State to a 45-21 victory Saturday over Grambling State.
Jones replaced Randle at quarterback for the Delta Devils (2-4, 2-2 Southwestern Athletic Conference) at the start of the second quarter. After a 20-yard completion on third-and-6 from the MVSU 10, Jones broke free for his 70-yard touchdown to make it 10-0.
His 43-yard score came on a second-and-8 play after a 24-yard completion to Julian Stafford.
Randle was back at quarterback in the second half and found Stafford for touchdowns of 65 and 51 yards and Brandon Stansell for a 34-yarder. Stafford also returned a kickoff 88 yards for a third-quarter score and had 162 receiving yards on seven catches.
