MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Jahaad Coleman rushed for touchdowns of 9 and 78 yards and Daniel Duhart passed for two more as Alabama State scored the last 20 points in a 41-28 come-from-behind victory over Division II Stillman in the 90th annual Turkey Day Classic.
Alabama State (8-4) cruised out 14-0 but a string of big plays helped Stillman put a scare into the Hornets. Stillman (6-5) scored on a kickoff return, a fumble return, a 77-yard pass play and an interception return to grab the lead 28-21 early in the third quarter.
Dondre Purnell muffed the kickoff catch after Alabama State's second TD, but managed to grab the ball for a 90 yard score. He hauled in a 77-yard pass three plays after halftime, and Greg Abrams returned a Duhart interception 33 yards for a 28-21 lead.
Duhart came right back with an 11-yard TD to Brandon Barnes and Alabama State marched away.
