JSU Wins OVC Title, Looks Forward to SEMO
On Saturday the Jacksonville State football team laid claim to it’s fourth OVC title with a 27-20 win over Eastern Illinois. The victory gives JSU the automatic bid into the FCS playoffs. This Saturday they will close the regular season at Southeast Missouri and there is still a lot to play for in terms of the playoffs.
With a win, the Gamecocks can earn a top eight national seed and a first round bye. Saturday’s win marked the first time JSU has posted a 7-0 record in league play. It was also the first outright OVC championship since 2004.
