HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) Chance Wilson's extra point following Daunte Mason's 1-yard touchdown run in overtime propelled Alabama A&M over Southern 24-23 Saturday in Southwest Athletic Conference action.

Mason has 13 passing TDs and nine rushing TDs in his past seven games.

The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Alabama A&M, which remains in first place in the SWAC's East division.

Southern's Slyvester Nzekwe ran for 105 yards on 16 carries, and Joseph threw for 148 yards and two TDs on 16-of-32 passing.

Derrius Guice saw 'Avengers' on Monday night — and brought a bunch of Redskins fans with him

Derrius Guice saw 'Avengers' on Monday night — and brought a bunch of Redskins fans with him

Those who are worried about Derrius Guice's character picked up some added evidence when, on Monday night, the Redskins rookie invited a bunch of fans to watch Avengers with him in Ashburn.

Man, what is this guy's deal?

First of all, not everyone likes superheroes. So how did he know that those who joined him actually wanted to see Avengers?  Did he even ask? What if they wanted to see that really successful, really funny, really well-regarded Amy Schumer comedy, instead?

Then, there's the issue of Guice buying tickets and concessions for those who showed up.

Some people enjoy buying movie tickets — which are absolutely reasonably priced these days — and, as far as the concessions, seriously? Candy? Popcorn? He could've at least offered to buy something healthier, like broccoli. All movie theaters have broccoli.  

Thankfully, those who took Guice up on his invitation weren't grateful for the experience at all, which hopefully means this will be the last time he orchestrates a dastardly deed like this one:

At this point, it's a surprise Guice didn't slide even farther down in the draft, like to the 15th round. Unbelievable.
