After trading two field goals late in the third quarter, Alabama State (7-3, 7-2) entered the fourth quarter leading 31-24.
Following a missed 43-yard field goal by Bobby Wenzing, with 3:05 remaining Dray Joseph led Southern on a 10-play, 45-yard drive resulting in what looked to be the tying touchdown with 20 seconds left to play.
