Gamecocks Return To Top Ten After Loss & Prep for UT-Martin
After suffering its first OVC loss since 2013, the Jacksonville State football responded in a big way with a 42-15 win over then-first place Murray State. The Gamecocks used a balanced attack to put up more than 570 yards of total offense. JSU rushed for 291 and passed for 286 and recorded just 2 penalties. This Saturday JSU is back at home in another OVC matchup against UT-Martin and they know the solid production will need to carry over into this Saturday.
