MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Alabama State University football team made its final preparation for Saturday's showdown against Texas Southern. 

The Hornets (3-2 overall, 3-1 SWAC) and Tigers (1-4, 1-2) will play at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Cramton Bowl. The game will broadcast live on WVAS 90.7 FM and will be streamed live at: http://www.bamastatesports.com/showcase.  

"Practice went well today, being that we got in and did what we had to do early," head coach Reggie Barlow said. "The guys were focused for the most part but our red zone work wasn't as crisp as I would have liked it to have been." 

ASU leads the Southwestern Athletic Conference in red zone efficiency offensively. The Hornets are 16 of 17 offensively in the red zone, while the Tigers are ranked fourth in the league going 6-7.    

"The tempo was fairly decent today," said Barlow. "We worked on some specific things; red zone area and some two-minute stuff. We were a bit inconsistent, I thought on offense last week in the red zone, but I think defensively we did well." 

Alabama State ran for a combined 256 yards on 56 carries after being shut down by the pour of rain in the passing game. Sophomore running back Isaiah Crowell led the charge with 133 yards on 16 carries for the Hornets.  

"We were proud to have such a great running game on last week," Barlow stated. "We are blessed to have a trio of running backs and we're hoping to continue to run it effectively throughout the rest of the season."
