UAPB upset by NAIA school Langston in Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Terrance Walker returned a fumble five

yards for a touchdown to lead an opportunistic Langston defense as

the NAIA school defeated Arkansas-Pine Bluff 19-12 in Saturday's

season opener.

In the Delta Classic 4 Literacy, Langston forced five turnovers

against the Golden Lions, an FCS school that went 5-6 last season.

Darrion Lewis threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Carlos Ross, and

Anthony Fernandez kicked two field goals.

The Golden Lions outgained Langston 313-246 but were denied

points on their first four visits inside the 25-yard line, thanks

to a fumble, interception and two missed field goals.

Walker's score gave Langston a 16-0 lead 14 seconds into the

fourth quarter. Arkansas Pine-Bluff made it 16-12 with a 25-yard

touchdown pass from Benjamin Anderson to Mareo Howard and a 1-yard

run by Stephen Jones, but got no closer.

Located in Langston, Okla., the Lions went 6-4 in 2010. Mickey

Joseph, who quarterbacked Nebraska to nine wins in 1990, is the

program's interim coach.
