BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Christopher Barrick kicked a 19-yard field goal with 10 seconds remaining to give Prairie View A&M a 23-20 victory over Southern University in a Southwestern Athletic Conference game Saturday night.

The game-winning kick was the second this season for Barrick, whose 36-yarder gave the Panthers (4-2, 4-1) a 37-34 win over Texas Southern on Sept. 10. It also gave first-year coach Heishma Northern a victory over his alma mater.

Barrick's kick against the Jaguars (2-4, 2-2) capped a 12-play, 41-yard drive that consumed 5:13 and featured six carries by Le'Darr Groover and four by Fred Anderson.

Southern had tied the game 20-20 on a 38-yard interception return by Anthony Balancier with 19 seconds left in the third quarter.

Prairie View also got a touchdown on an interception return, going ahead 14-7 in the second quarter when Moses Ellis ran one back.
