Alabama A&M dominated Alabama State in the second half to capture the Magic City Classic in Birmingham.

Alabama A&M won’t make the SWAC title game this year, but it did its part to try to make sure its rival doesn’t either.

AAMU came up with a big second half to come away with a 27-10 win over Alabama State in the Magic City Classic in front of 65,907 fans.

Aqueel Glass threw for three touchdowns and Jordan Bentley ran for a 57 yard score to give the Bulldogs bragging rights over their rivals. Glass completed 17 of his 30 pass attempts for 322 yards and no interceptions in the win.

Nathaniel Dale had a big game for AAMU as well, catching six passes for 204 yards and two scores. Nine receivers caught passes on the day.

AAMU improved to 4-3 overall, and 2-2 in the SWAC. ASU fell to 2-5, 1-2 in the SWAC.
