Jackson State and Southern were involved in a postgame brawl on Saturday night after Deion Sanders’ squad secured a 21-17 win and a SWAC East division title.

Tigers quarterback Shedeur Sanders, one of Deion’s sons on the team, led Jackson State back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter. He threw two touchdown passes to Malachi Wideman, including a 50-yard pass with 1:31 left in the game and lifted the Tigers to the win.
