HOUSTON (AP) — Andrew Boddy threw two touchdown passes — including a 65-yarder to AJ Bennett — and Texas Southern beat Grambling 41-7 on Saturday night.

Midway through the first quarter, LaDarius Owens gave Texas Southern (5-5, 4-3, Southwest Athletic Conference) a 7-0 1-yard run. Freshman Julian Calves hit Joshua Johnson with a 37-yard field goal four minutes later to tie the score for Grambling (3-7, 2-5).

Bodie needed just 1:48 to go 54 yards and hit Tavaris Achain for a 15-yard touchdown with 23 seconds left in the period. Boddy’s long pass to Bennett was the only score of the second quarter and the Tigers led 21-7 at halftime.

Isaiah Hamilton took a pass from Quaterius Hawkins and returned it 12 yards for a score, and Kevin Harris added a 1-yard touchdown with five seconds left in the third quarter to put Texas Southern up 33-7. Davon Ford scored from a yard out during a fourth-quarter drive to complete the scoring.

Tella completed 13 of 20 passes for 190 yards. Owens carried 13 times for 105 yards.

Calves and Hawkins combined to complete 10 of 23 passes for 118 yards with an interception each for the Grambling Tigers.
