Alcorn State dominates Edward Waters 63-12

Arnold Walker scored three touchdowns as Alcorn State dominated

Edward Waters 63-12 in the season opener for both teams on

Saturday.

Walker’s three scores came on just 75 yards rushing, but three

other Braves rushed for at least 50 yards as ground attack piled up

280 yards.

The contest got away from Edward Waters early and Alcorn State

won back-to-back home openers for the first time since

2003-2004.

The Tigers countered Alcorn’s first touchdown with a field goal

before Walker scored two rushing touchdowns less than three minutes

apart to give the Braves a double-digit lead.

Alcorn’s defense shut down Edward Waters, recovering three

fumbles and tallying two interceptions. The only scoring for Edward

Waters came on four field goals.
