CLINTON, MS - The Mississippi College football team won their second consecutive conference game with a 38-21 win over Sul Ross State on Saturday afternoon at Robinson-Hale Stadium.  The Choctaws (4-4, 2-4 ASC) ran for 227 yards and passed for 232 yards in a balanced attack victory over the Lobos (1-6, 1-5 ASC).

The Choctaws opened the scoring in the first half with a nine play, 55-yard drive that ended with a three-yard touchdown run by Austin Divinity.  The Utica native rushed for 154 yards on an MC season-high 31 carries with the one score.

The Lobos answered back with a four-play, 96-yard drive and an 18-yard touchdown pass from Monte Morales to Louis Aguilar.  Morales completed 12 of 24 passes for 164 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions.  Aguilar caught three balls for 58 yards and two scores.

Senior Dale Wallace connected on a 27-yard field goal to give the Choctaws a 10-7 lead heading into halftime.

Sul Ross State would open the scoring in the second half, taking their only lead of the game with a 24-yard touchdown pass from Morales to BJ Vickers.  Vickers caught two passes for 21 yards, while Lee Carothers was the leading receiver with seven catches for 121 yards.

MC would take the lead for good with 6:27 remaining in the third quarter when sophomore Kenderick Johnson ran in from five yards out.

Junior Brian Richardson extended the advantage on the last play of the third quarter with a 33-yard touchdown pass on a stop-and-go from junior Tommy Reyer.  Richardson caught two passes for 35 yards, while Reyer was 17 of 31 for 232 yards and three touchdowns.

Aguilar caught his second touchdown pass of the day for the Lobos to cut the lead to 24-21.

MC sophomore Randal Pharr joined the party with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Reyer with 6:04 left in the game.  Pharr would add a 29-yard touchdown reception in the final minutes on his way to five catches for 77 yards.

Defensively, the Choctaws were led by Jeremy Bertrand and Luke Petitto with six tackles each.  Bertrand pulled down his second interception of the year, while freshman Darren Watts also picked off a Morales pass.

With the victory, the Choctaws evened up their record at 4-4, and will head to Seguin, TX to face Texas Lutheran at 1:00 p.m. next Saturday.
