MOBILE, Ala. — Aqeel Glass threw for 405 yards and four touchdowns and Alabama A&M beat Tuskegee, 45-35 in the 4th Gulf Coast Challenge.
Alabama A&M hasn’t lost a game since Nov. 16, 2019 when Alcorn State beat the Bulldogs 34-28. The Tigers closed to within 31-28 when Ivonte Patterson ran it from 1-yard out to end the third quarter and Louis Williams threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Jamaal Pritchett with 12 minutes remaining.
But the Bulldogs’ Gary Quarles ran 44 yards for a score on A&M’s following drive, and six minutes later Glass threw a 21-yard TD to Odieu Hilaire to make it 45-28 with five minutes left.
Alabama A&M will head to the bayou state as they resume their Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) schedule for a meeting with Grambling State. That game is set for Grambling, Louisiana and will kick off at 2 p.m. in the Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium on Saturday, October 2.
The Bulldogs are now 2-1 in the Gulf Coast Challenge, having fallen to Southern 29-27 in the first game on September 22, 2018 and knocking off DII Central State 63-20 in the second contest on September 28, 2019.
