Tuskegee tops Alabama State in Turkey Day Classic

Montgomery, AL (Sports Network) - Tuskegee won the oldest football classic among the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities, beating Alabama State for the second straight year, 17-10, in the Turkey Day Classic at the Cramton Bowl.

Joshua Harris threw for a touchdown and Nykeem Barton rushed for one to power Division II Tuskegee (9-2), which completed a sweep of the Football Championship Subdivision teams that will play in the SWAC Championship Game on Dec. 11, Alabama State (7-4) and Texas Southern (8-3). The Golden Tigers extended their series lead over Alabama State to 60-33-4, including 48-31-3 in the Turkey Day Classic.

Tuskegee built a 10-0 halftime lead on Barton's 18th touchdown run of the season -- a 20-yarder in the first quarter -- and Eduardo Murillo's 24-yard field goal in the second quarter.

A 28-yard field goal by Andrew Lyons in the third quarter cut Alabama State's deficit to 10-3, but Harris connected with Stephen Clements for a two-yard touchdown pass with 9:59 left in the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Devin Dominguez scored on a 5-yard run to pull Alabama State within a touchdown with 8:08 remaining, but the Hornets failed to score again. Dominguez threw for 218 yards, including 105 on seven passes to Nick Andrews.
