Kendric Jones returned the ensuing kickoff 38 yards to near midfield before Skelton took the reins, leading Southern on an 11-play, 55-yard drive. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound junior ran for 30 yards -- including a 12-yard scamper on a fourth-and-2 -- and hit Register for a 20-yard gain on third-and-11 before connecting again with Register for the winner.
