The Jacksonville State football team is gearing up for what they hope is a big day of celebration at Burgess-Snow Field. The Gamecocks face Eastern Illinois who come in 5-1 in the OVC. A JSU win means they are the outright conference champions. It’s also senior day in Jacksonville- marking the last regular home game for the veterans.
The Gamecocks offense has been remarkable once again averaging 505 yards and 35 points per game. But it’s the defense that has been the silent heros. The unit leads the league in points allowed at 19.2; but in the last 3 weeks they have been lights out, giving up just nine combined points.
JSU vs Eastern Illinois will be aired on tape delay on TV24 on Saturday night at 9:30pm.
