MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Trazon Connley ran for 202 yards on 20 carries and passed for 149 yards and two late second-quarter touchdowns to help Prairie View beat Alabama State 20-17 on Thursday in the 96th annual Turkey Day Classic.

Alabama State had a chance to force overtime on a 30-yard-field goal with 7 seconds left, but the snap was mishandled and Hunter Hanson hurried the kick into the line of scrimmage.

Connley completed 15 of 31 passes, throwing a 3-yard scoring pass to Tristen Wallace with 22 seconds left in the first half and a 20-yarder to Kalen Riley with 7 seconds to go following an onside kick.

Prairie View (6-5, 4-3 Southwestern Athletic) took a 20-3 lead on Dawonya Tucker’s 12-yard run with 3:03 left in the third.

Alabama State’s KHA'Darris Davis threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Michael Jefferson on the final play of the third quarter. The two teamed again on a 10-yarder with 9:40 to go.

Davis was 25 of 46 for 207 yards for the Hornets (5-6, 4-3).
