Southern fumbles in the fourth quarter, falling to former Glen Oaks alum Johnta' Hebert and Prairie View A&M.

Hebert was the one who really celebrated a homecoming as the former Baton Rouge prep star had four touchdowns to lead Prairie View to a come-from-behind 47-42 victory that spoiled Southern's homecoming.

Hebert rushed for two touchdowns and 114 yards on 17 carries and added two receiving touchdowns to go with 170 yards on 10 receptions.

Prairie View (4-2, 4-1) passed the Jaguars in the SWAC Western Division standings with the win.

Trailing 30-27 in the fourth quarter, the Panthers recovered a fumble at Southern's 1-yard line and took the lead on De'Auntre Smiley's touchdown run 34-30.

Hebert's third touchdown of the game increased the lead to 40-30. Southern (3-3, 3-1) edged the Panthers 520-517 in total yards, but had six fumbles to Prairie View's two and could get no closer than 40-36 in the fourth quarter.

Hebert's final touchdown extended the Panthers' lead to 47-36, before Southern's Lenard Tillery scored on the game's final play.

Southern quarterback Austin Howard was 18 of 28 for 377 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for a fourth touchdown.

Hebert's 398 all-purpose yards, including 284 from scrimmage, topped the Panthers and the four scores give the senior 28 touchdowns in his Prairie View career. He had three against the Jaguars the last time they met in Baton Rouge, a 62-59 OT win for Southern in 2013.
