MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) De'Ante Saunders had two interceptions, returning one 45 yards for a touchdown to fuel a stout defensive effort by Tennessee State in a 35-7 victory over Jackson State on Saturday night.

Tennessee State's (2-1) defense stymied Jackson State in the opening half, forcing three-and-outs on six of the first seven drives.

Jackson State's (2-1) fifth drive looked to have stalled as well, but a roughing the punter penalty extended it. Saunders' pick six came on the next play on an attempt by LaMontiez Ivy.

Ronald Butler found Dantwaun O'Neal for an 8-yard score and Tom Smith's second rushing touchdown made it 35-0 at halftime.

Anthony Bass had 2 1/2 of Tennessee State's seven sacks, helping limit Jackson State to -1 yard rushing total on 26 attempts.

Tennessee State lost the shutout when Rakeem Sims scored on a 5-yard run to put Jackson State on the board in the third quarter.
