Southern University Jaguars (7-4)


Sanders' 4 TDs help Jackson St rout Southern for SWAC title

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Shedeur Sanders threw for four touchdowns, including two on three first-quarter turnovers, staking Jackson State to a big early lead on the way to routing Southern 43-24 in Saturday's Southwest Athletic Conference championship that was possibly Deion Sanders' final game as Tigers coach.

Reports swirled before the game that Sanders would announce his departure from the FCS program after three seasons to become head coach at Colorado. Sanders acknowledged an offer from the school earlier this week and added that he had talked to other FBS programs about vacancies. Colorado's board of regents called a special meeting for Sunday but hasn't commented on any candidates taking over the Buffaloes.

JSU (12-0) quashed any questions about Sanders' future being a distraction by completing the first unbeaten regular season in school history and claiming its second consecutive SWAC championship. The Tigers' top-ranked defense set the tone by quickly pouncing on the Jaguars for three turnovers in eight plays in the first quarter.
