Thanks in large part to the JSU defense, the Gamecocks kept their streak of OVC victories alive at 20 games. The unit posted five interceptions and returned three for touchdowns, the only TDs in the 24-7 win. During Monday morning's press conference the players and head coach John Grass spoke this morning about playing complementary football.
In other news, cornerback Jaylen Hill was named the OVC’s Defensive Player of the Week. The senior recorded two of the team’s five interceptions including a pick-six. The Gamecocks will host Eastern Illinois for homecoming this Saturday. Kickoff set for 2:00 pm at Burgess-Snow Field on WEAC-TV24.
