HOUSTON (AP) Lenard Tillery rushed for a career-high 198 yards with two touchdowns and Southern beat Texas Southern 40-21 in a game played earlier than scheduled due to heavy rain bands from Hurricane Patricia.

Southern (4-3, 4-1 Southwestern) got off on the right foot, as Willie Quinn returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown. Texas Southern tied it after a fumble on a punt return set up a short field for Brad Woodard's 2-yard run.

Southern's first offensive drive resulted in a 3-yard touchdown run by Tillery, and he added another - a 2-yard plunge - to put the Jaguars up 21-7 with 1:55 left in the first quarter.

Texas Southern (3-4, 2-4) responded, as Larry Clark III's 54-yard touchdown catch and Malik Cross' 18-yarder tied the game at 21 at halftime.

In the third, Southern added a short field goal by Gregg Pittman, and a blocked punt resulted in a safety. Touchdown runs by Deonte Shorts and John West iced the win.
