Jacksonville State is gearing up for their conference opener against Tennessee State this weekend. The Tigers are 2-0 with victories over Alabama State and Jackson State. Two years ago, the Tigers beat the Gamecocks at Burgess-Snow Field in a very physical game and last season JSU needed a gutsy effort to pull off a 27-20 win in Nashville.
The JSU offense goes as quarterback Eli Jenkins goes and so far he's been great. One could make an argument (from a production standpoint) the junior is the best quarterback in college football in the state of Alabama right now. His ability to both throw and run keeps opposing defenses on honest and on their heels.
JSU and Tennessee State square off at Burgess-Snow Field Saturday afternoon and you can catch the action on TV24 at 1:05pm.
