D-II Tuskegee upends Alabama St. 14-6 behind Ezell

Sep 3, 2017 - 5:05 AM MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Jamarcus Ezell threw a touchdown pass and Jonah McCutcheon had a 46-yard interception return for a score and NCAA Division II-member Tuskegee never trailed in its 14-6 win over Alabama State Saturday night. Ezell threw a 55-yard touchdown to Peyton Ramzy 90 seconds before halftime for the game's first score. After a scoreless third quarter, McCutcheon picked off Hornets reserve quarterback Darryl Pearson Jr. with 10:46 left in the game. Starter Kobie Jones returned for the Hornets and threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Alex Anderson to avoid the shut out in the season opener for both teams. Alabama State outgained Tuskegee in total yards 367-192 and owned time of possession 35:47 to 24:13. However, the Hornets were flagged for 17 penalties totaling 156 yards and committed two turnovers. The last time the two teams met was in 2012, with Tuskegee claiming a 27-25 win at ASU Stadium in the final meeting between the two in the Turkey Day Classic.
