PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) — Taeyler Porter rushed for a season-high 197 yards on 30 carries with two touchdowns and Arkansas-Pine Bluff beat Texas Southern 45-13 on Saturday to post its first winning season in seven years.

Skyler Perry passed for two touchdowns and Taylor Holston and Shannon Patrick passed for one apiece for the Golden Lions (6-5, 3-4 Southwestern Athletic Conference), who snapped a three-game losing streak. DeJuan Miller had 106 yards receiving including a 71-yarder. Henry Ballard III, Daryl Carter and Tyrin Ralph had the other TD catches.

UAPB took a 31-7 lead after a 21-point second quarter.
