Late touchdown by Lowe completes comeback rally for Golden Tigers

9/15/2013


Hoderick Lowe scored on this eight-yard touchdown run, which would end up being the game winner against Albany State on Saturday night.


ALBANY, Ga. - In a game that Albany State led since they scored their first touchdown midway through the second quarter, a late fourth-quarter touchdown by Tuskegee running back Hoderick Lowe gave the Golden Tigers the separation they needed in earning a hard-fought 19-13 victory over Albany State on the road on Saturday night.

Tuskegee (2-0) escaped out of the ASU Coliseum despite having four fumbles and two turnovers against the Golden Rams (0-2) in a rare non-conference game between SIAC opponents. A blocked punt by Kaleep Williams late in the third quarter allowed for a major momentum shift, and Tuskegee was able to take over and score on a QB rush from the goal line. This tied up the game after two field goals from Albany State's Zachary Holley extended their lead to a touchdown after leading 7-6 at the half.

Nared was 11-of-19 on the evening, throwing for 173 yards and an interception. Quavon Taylor had a total of 11 tackles to lead the Golden Tigers, and he also had a key pass breakup to lead the defense, which struggled with Albany's offense through much of the first three quarters.

Two key field goals were kicked by freshman Trevor Wylie, who nailed a 32-yarder to give TU a 3-0 lead, and a 34-yarder to cut Albany State's lead down to one-point right before halftime.
