Prairie View A&M Panthers (7-5)


'Coach Prime' leads Jackson State to SWAC championship

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Deion Sanders checked the primary objective off his coaching to-do list with a Southwestern Athletic Conference championship, leading Jackson State to a 27-10 victory over Prairie View A&M on Saturday.

And Sanders' Tigers captured the title with a performance befitting his Hall of Fame versatility as a cornerback, receiver and returner: scoring touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams.

The victory capped off an impressive season for `Coach Prime," who earned SWAC coach of the year honors, shared the national spotlight with Alabama's Nick Saban and saw his son, Jackson State quarterback Shedeur Sanders named SWAC freshman of the year.
