HOUSTON (AP) - Eric Medina drilled a 51-yard field goal as time expired and Texas Southern came back to beat Alabama A&M; 34-31 on Saturday night.

Medina’s kick capped a 5-play 34 yard drive, highlighted by an Averion Hurts 13-yard completion to Austin Watts and a roughing-the-passer penalty to put the Tigers in range.

Hurts threw for 256 yards and two TD’s and added 55 yards rushing with a score. Larry Clark had 104 yards receiving for the Tigers.

Texas Southern trailed 31-24 late in the fourth, after a Jordan Bentley 10-yard scoring run gave the Bulldogs the lead. Hurts answered for the Tigers with a 5-yard TD run to tie it up with 2:25 to go.

Bentley led Alabama A&M; (1-4, 1-3) with 114 yards and three touchdowns.
