Prairie View A&M ended its NCAA-record 80-game losing streak Saturday night, stopping a 2-point conversion in the final minute for a 14-12 victory over Langston.
The win was the Panthers' first since Oct. 28, 1989, when they defeated Mississippi Valley 21-12. The losing streak started the following week with a 19-18 loss at Langston.The victory was extra sweet for Prairie View coach Greg Johnson, who left Langston two years ago to rebuild the Panthers program.
Langston cut Prairie View's lead to 14-12 on Archie Craft's 51-yard touchdown pass to Ted Roberts with 34 seconds left. Langston then went for the tying 2-pointer, but Craft was stopped just short of the goal line on a quarterback sneak.
Langston then tried an onside kick, but it was recovered by Prairie View, and the Panthers ran out the clock.
