Jaguars looking to finish strong

Posted: Updated:

From Southern University

ATLANTA, GA - Despite holding a comfortable 16-point lead late in the second half, Southern allowed FAMU to steal a 38-33 victory in last season Atlanta Football Classic.

With that disappointing loss on their mind, interim coach Dawson Odums preached finishing on Saturday as the Jaguars and Rattlers battle in the 2012 Bank of America Atlanta Football Classic.

Odums picked up his first win at Southern with a stunning 28-21 win at Jackson State. Southern raced out to a commanding 28-0 lead after Jaleel Richardson's 86-yard touchdown on the opening kickoff and three passing TDs from junior Dray Joseph.

The Jaguars face FAMU's Damien Flemming who threw for 399 yards and completed 30-of- 37 pass attempts in the Rattlers' 24-22 win at Delaware State.
