The Tigers (6-4, 6-2 Southwestern Athletic Conference) moved ahead of the Bulldogs (7-3, 6-3) in the Eastern Division race and hold a tiebreaker advantage over Alabama State if they can beat Alcorn State next week.
Moore also ran for a 7-yard touchdown to open the scoring in the second quarter, and Sims's 7-yard scoring run made it 14-0 at halftime.
Alabama A&M halved its deficit in the third quarter, but Jackson State regained control with two big plays.
Bulldogs quarterback Deaunte Mason threw for three touchdowns, but the Tigers limited him to 17 completions in 40 attempts for 193 yards.
