HOUSTON (AP) — Trey Green ran for two touchdowns and threw for a third as Prairie View A&M ran away from Southwestern Conference rival Texas Southern, 38-11 in the season opener for both teams Saturday night.

The victory made Willie Simmons a winner in his debut as head coach of Prairie View A&M.

Green ran 80 yards for his first score in the opening minutes of the game and the Panthers held a 10-3 lead at halftime. Green scored from the 2 early in the third quarter and Johnta Hebert added an 11-yard run for a score to give Prairie View a 24-3 lead after three quarters.

After Green threw 11 yards to Nick Pitre for a 7-yard score to make it 31-3, Averion Hurts got Texas Southern into the end zone with a 5-yard toss to Larry Clark III.
