No. 8 Gamecocks Ready To Play Back To Back Games

Tuesday, September 25, 2018


After an unorthodox start to the season, the Jacksonville State football team will finally get a sense of normalcy this week against Austin Peay. This will be the first time the Gamecocks will play back-to-back Saturdays when they face Austin Peay for homecoming. The Gamecocks won their 33rd straight OVC game on Saturday beating Tennessee Tech 48-20 last weekend, they say they’re excited to get back to work and play again this week. 


Wide receiver Josh Pearson was named the Ohio Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Week. The redshirt junior caught five passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns against Tennessee Tech. The Gamecocks also moved up in the new national FCS polls. JSU ranks eighth in the nation in both the STATS Media poll and the Coaches rankings.
