Texas Southern downs Central State 30-16

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) Daveonn Porter ran for two touchdowns and Texas Southern beat Central State 30-16 Saturday.

Porter scored on runs of 26 and 5 yards, and gained 89 yards on 18 carries, as TSU moved to 3-0 this season. Jamal Small added 108 yards on 13 carries, and went 17 of 31 for 186 yards and two TDs, for the Tigers.

Central State (1-1) scored first on John Adams’ 32-yard field goal, capping a 10-play, 64-yard first quarter drive. But Small connected with Fred Plummer for 26 yards for a score, then found Malik Cross from six yards to lead 13-3 at half.

Porter’s first TD made it 20-3 early in the third. But Central State scored twice – the latter a 25-yard interception return by Christian Wilson – to cut it to 20-16.

Eric Medina kicked a 24-yard field goal, then Porter’s fourth quarter, 4-yard scamper put it out of reach.
