Two Vicksburg natives led their college football teams to big wins this weekend.

Former Warren Central star Demarcus Jones caught the first touchdown of the game for the University of Southern Mississippi in a 41-31 win over North Texas. Jones scored on a 22-yard catch from quarterback Jack Abraham in the first quarter.

Southern Miss posted a video of the touchdown on Twitter.

Former St. Aloysius offensive lineman Ben Brown was a lead blocker for the Ole Miss Rebels in their 42-41 victory over Kentucky. Brown protected quarterback Matt Corral who threw four touchdowns in the game Saturday, which contributed to the big win.
