PINE BLUFF, Ark. -- Justin Billings ran for 82 yards and a touchdown, Tyler Strickland kicked a 29-yard field goal and the Arkansas-Pine Bluff defense did the rest Saturday in a 10-0 victory over Mississippi Valley State, the Golden Lions' first shutout win since 2008.
Billings scored on a 21-yard run in the second quarter. Benjamin Anderson added 155 yards on 21-of-30 passing, with one interception, for UAPB (6-2, 5-1 Southwestern), which maintained its two-game lead in the SWAC West Division.
Brandon Stansell had 102 yards rushing for the Delta Devils (2-6, 2-4), who couldn't get anything else done offensively. MVSU managed just eight completions and 52 yards passing, missed one field-goal attempt and had another one blocked.
MVSU defensive tackle Robert Simpson, who came in leading the Football Conference Subdivision with 15 tackles for a loss, added one more in this one.
The Golden Lions have won their last five meetings with MVSU.
