GRAMBLING, La. -- Justin Billings and Dennis Jenkins each went over the century mark rushing as Arkansas-Pine Bluff outgained Grambling State 526-258 in a 24-17 victory Saturday in Southwestern Athletic Conference action.

The Golden Lions (8-2, 7-1) outrushed the Tigers (1-9, 0-8) 318-46, yet narrowly won the time of possession battle by 34 seconds as Grambling State hung tough with the SWAC's West Division champions.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff jumped to a 14-0 lead as Benjamin Anderson completed a 66-yard TD pass to Willie Young and ran in an 8-yard score. Billings added a 1-yard TD run as the Golden Lions built a 24-7 lead by the half.

Billings amassed 130 yards on 22 attempts while Jenkins picked up 105 yards on 19 carries.

Grambling State began four drives in Arkansas-Pine Bluff territory, but capitalized only once -- a 21-yard TD pass from Frank Rivers to Jeremy Hernandez in the fourth quarter.
