It took them a while to get to the OVC part of the schedule, but Jacksonville State picked up right where they left off with a big win. The Gamecocks 40-21 victory over Tennessee Tech not only marks a great start in conference play, but also runs their streak over league opponents to 18 in a row. Another OVC opponent awaits JSU at the end of the week. The Gamecocks face Austin Peay who enter the game with an 0-4 mark in the OVC. But the message all season is to not focus on the opponent but continue to get better. They know everyone in the league is gunning for the defending conference champions.
The Gamecocks and Govenors hook up at Burgess-Snow Field in Jacksonville on Saturday at 1:00 pm.
