Associated Press

ITTA BENA, Miss. -- Benjamin Anderson threw two touchdowns passes and rushed for two to lead Arkansas-Pine Bluff to a 38-18 victory over Mississippi Valley State Saturday night.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff (1-7, 1-5 Southwestern Athletic Conference) wins its first game. It's also the first time the Golden Lions have held their opponent to less than three touchdowns in a game this season.

Anderson was 20 of 30 for 269 yards passing. His 86-yard pass to Cody Swain was the longest touchdown connection of the night, and put the Golden Lions up 38-18 with 13:21 remaining. Anderson also had 22 carries for 123 yards rushing. His two rushing TDs were sneaks from 3 and 2 yards out.

The Golden Lions forced three interceptions, two in the fourth quarter, to thwart any MVSU (1-7, 1-5) comeback. Xavier Lofton also recovered a fumble and returned it for a 55-yard touchdown as the Golden Lions forced four MVSU turnovers.
