Alabama A&M beats Grambling 23-9

Associated Press

GRAMBLING, La. -- Brandon Wells threw for two touchdowns and the Alabama A&M offense dominated the Grambling defense to crush the Tigers 23-9 Saturday night.

Wells was 15 of 28 for 187 yards and connected with Toriono Upshaw for two Bulldog scores. The Bulldogs had 325 yards overall compared to 165 yards for the Grambling offense.

The Southwest Athletic Conference matchup got off to a shaky start for both teams. Neither team scored until the second quarter when Alabama A&M's Cedric Skinner was tackled in the Bulldogs' end zone for a Grambling safety.

Barrington Scott rushed for 77 yards and the Bulldogs' other touchdown.

Grambling is trying to bounce back from a winless conference record in 2012.
