BATON ROUGE, La. -- Homecoming on the Bluff was a night to remember for Southerns' Junior Quarterback. Ladarius Skelton accounted for a career-high 436 yards of total offense and four touchdowns as the SWAC West Division leader slipped past Alabama A&M 35-31. He threw a game-winning 2-yard TD pass with 28 seconds remaining and was 16 of 25 for 198 yards and two scores with no interceptions. He also racked up 238 rushing yards and two TDs on 34 carries. It was the 10th-most rushing yards by an FCS quarterback in the decade.
On Monday Skelton was named STATS FCS National Offensive Player of the Week, BOXTOROW National Player of the Week and SWAC Offensive Player of the Week.
Skelton is the second SWAC player this season to be honored by the STATS FCS committee. The Jaguars sit at the top of the Western Division with two conference games left.
