After losing against Mississippi Valley State University the last time they met, Alabama State finally got their revenge on Saturday afternoon, winning 24-9.
Alabama State’s Myles Crawley led the charge through the air. His 270 yards were a season high. Receivers Jeremiah Hixon and Kisean Johnson were Crawley’s main targets, collecting 92 and 116 receiving yards respectively. As a unit, Bama St.’s offense was efficient and often times explosive, amassing 353 total yards.
Mississippi Valley State University’s pass defense was a key component to their struggles against Bama St. They allowed 10.3 yards per pass attempt. Losing 71 yards to penalties certainly also played a role in their struggles. However, Jacory Rankin pulled down a season high one receiving touchdown to keep the matchup within a score.
Alabama State’s success today ups their record to 4-3 on the season. With a bye coming up on the schedule, they’ll have an extra week of preparation for their next game against Alabama A&M on October 29. Another loss for Mississippi Valley State University means that their losing skid extends to seven games. Their fortunes might turn next weekend as they welcome a struggling Bethune-Cookman to Rice-Totten Stadium.
