DALLAS (AP) - Prairie View A&M knocked off Grambling State, 31-3 in the annual State Fair Classic game, the third straight year the Panthers have beaten the Tigers in the Cotton Bowl Saturday.

Jerry Lovelocke ran for one touchdown and passed for two more as Prairie View A&M (4-2, 3-1 SWAC) pulled away steadily, recovering a Grambling State fumble on the Tigers' first possession and kicking a 22-yard field goal barely two minutes into the game.

Lovelocke threw 12 yards to Courtney Brown in the first quarter to give the Panthers a 10-0 lead, then threw 23 yards to Deandre Cooper and powered in from the 1 in the third to push the lead to 24-3 heading into the fourth quarter.

Jamespaul Bryant returned a Grambling State fumble 64 yards for a touchdown.

A 33-yard, second-quarter field goal by Johnathan Wallace was the lone score for Grambling State (0-6, 0-3 SWAC).
