HOUSTON -- Homer Causey ran for one touchdown and threw for another and Texas Southern beat Prairie View A&M 37-35 in both team's season opener on Sunday.

Causey went 14 of 22 for 224 yards and rushed for 88 yards, pacing the Tigers over their Southwestern Athletic Conference foe.

Texas Southern went up 17-14 with 6:33 in the first half on Causey's 44-yard touchdown pass to Malik Cross. Prairie View answered with a 76-yard touchdown pass from Jerry Locklove to Nick Petre on the next play. TSU's Eric Medina hit a 30-yard field goal with 2 seconds before halftime to make it 21-20 at intermission.

The Tigers scored 10 third-quarter points, on Causey's 4-yard touchdown run and Medina's 20-yard field goal.

Prairie View cut its deficit to 2 with 2:49 in the game on a 25-yard touchdown reception by Gabe Dunlap, but Texas Southern ran out the clock.
