ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -Dray Joseph threw for 162 yards and a touchdown and Southern scored 21 fourth-quarter points for a 37-27 victory against Delaware State on Sunday in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge at the Florida Citrus Bowl.

The victory gave Southern coach Stump Mitchell a successful debut as Jaguars coach and the Southwestern Athletic Conference its second victory in the series with the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Southern registered the other victory with a 2007 win over Florida A&M.

Joseph, a freshman, was pressed into his first start when Southern's Jermia McGinty was sideline with what the team called body cramps. Joseph accounted for two of the three Jaguars' fourth quarter scores as Southern erased a 27-16 deficit.
