College Football: Saturday’s roundup: WSSU ousted

Associated Press
WINSTON-SALEM ó Mickey Mohner passed for one touchdown and ran for another as Wayne State defeated previously unbeaten Winston-Salem State 21-14 in the Division II semifinals on Saturday.
The victory moved Wayne State (12-3) into next Saturday’s Division II championship game in Florence, Ala., against the winner of Saturday night’s game between Delta State and Pittsburg (Kan.) State.
Winston-Salem State (13-1) came into the game averaging 42.8 points per game but managed a season-low 14 points. The Rams are the first team in Historically Black College or University history to win 13 games in a season.
The Rams were down 21-7 before rallying. But they lost fumbles in the red zone and was stopped twice on a fumble and downs.
“It’s been a great run,” WSSU coach Connell Maynor said. “They had a great season. They’ve got no reason to hold their head down. They’re 13-1. No other HBCU has ever won 13 football games in a season. They set history, they made history, they are CIAA champs, Black College national champs, and they can keep their head high. It didn’t end the way we wanted it to. We wanted to win two more. But it didn’t happen. That’s life.”
SWAC TITLE
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ó Jacarde Carter returned a fumble 66 yards for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter to give Grambling State a 16-15 victory over Alabama A&M in the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship.
Grambling (8-4) won its sixth SWAC championship in the 13-year history of the event. Four of those wins have come against Alabama A&M, which fell to 1-5 all-time in the title game.
