MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Jeremiah Hixon dove over the pylon to score on a short pass in overtime and Dennis Roberts ended the game with a sack as Alabama State edged Mississippi Valley State 31-24 on Thursday in the season finale for both teams.
Hixon combined with KHA'Darris Davis on the 6-yard pass play. Roberts, in his final game at Alabama State (4-7, 3-4 Southwestern Athletic Conference), sacked Dejerric Bryant on fourth-and-15 from the 30.
Davis was 21-of-39 passing for 237 yards and four touchdowns, two going to Michael Jefferson.
The Delta Devils (1-10, 1-6) led 24-14 after three quarters but Davis connected on a 27-yard touchdown with Joe Williams IV and Hunter Hanson kicked a game-tying, 33-yard field goal with 1:56 remaining.
Henry Isaiah Robinson rushed for two touchdowns and Dejerric Bryant picked up 114 on the ground for the Delta Devils. Bryant was intercepted three times.
