Woodard, Odom power Texas Southern to 24-10 victory
PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) Brad Woodard rushed for 128 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries and Texas Southern cruised to a 24-10 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Saturday.
Elijah Odom added 92 yards and a score on 12 carries for the Tigers (2-8, 2-5 Southwestern Athletic Conference). Odom threw just three passes in the game, completing two, including a 25-yard scoring strike to Mario Smalls.

Dante McDonald's 2-yard TD run pulled the Lions within 14-10 at the half.
Aaron Cuevas' 23-yard field goal and Smalls' TD catch came in the third quarter to cap the scoring.
