In addition, each student publication will be issued one press and/or sideline photo pass. (2) Photographers must display their sideline photo passes at all times. If not, they may be asked to leave the stadium. (3) University personnel will be deployed on the sideline to ensure no abuses of these privileges. (4) Photographers are urged to shoot from the end zone to the 30-yard line on either side of the field and from either end zone. (5) Photographers and media should not linger in the bench area (between the 30-yard lines) at any time during the game.

The Jacksonville State University Board of Trustees approved to name its football field Burgess-Snow Field at JSU Stadium in the summer of 2010 and the Gamecocks will play their 65th season in the facility this year.

Long ago, in the days when Jacksonville State University went by Jacksonville State Teachers College and the athletic teams were nicknamed the “Eagle Owls,” football was played in a field next to John Forney National Guard Armory. In 1946 as JSU began to change, enrollment begin to rise and so did the popularity of football. Seeing the need for a new facility, the school built a stadium in the present location and it was dedicated in front of an overflow crowd at the 1947 Homecoming game against Pembroke. The Gamecocks went on to win that game and posted a perfect 9-0 season, including a 7-0 win over Florida State.

television broadcast facilities, and a game management booth. The stadium was also expanded and now includes 24,000 seats. The natural playing surface was replaced during the summer of 2005 to an artificial playing turf. It was the first major renovation to the stadium since the 1978 season. It took three months to install at a cost of just over $700,000 and was completed in time to hold summer graduation on the new playing field. Improvements in 2007 included two new scoreboards and the addition of “Gamecock Vision” a new video replay scoreboard. It is located in the east endzone and features a 14’ x 24’ ProStar VideoPlus Display that is one of the largest in the OVC. The video replay system utilizes the V-Link 4000 Video Processor and the Venus 7000 Controler. The scoreboard now spans 8’ by 48’ with LED Team Name Message Centers. On the Gamecock Field House, a new scoreboard was installed as Burgess-Snow Field is the only on-campus facility in the OVC to feature two scoreboards. Jacksonville State’s first win in renovated Burgess-Snow Field at JSU Stadium came the hard way, in 2010, but it is one Gamecock fans remember well.

The stadium got a facelift in 1965 when seating was expanded from 5,000 to 8,500 and a new press box was installed on the north side of the facility. Under the supervision of long-time Athletic Director Jerry N. Cole, the field house was constructed in 1977 and the expansion of the stadium was complete in time for the 1978 season when the student section was added to bring the capacity to 15,000.

After a lightning delay that pushed kickoff back 86 minutes, the 22,186 in attendance saw the fifth-ranked Jacksonville State football team score 21 unanswered points to pull of its second fourth-quarter come-frombehind win, a 21-17 thriller over Chattanooga.

Since opening in 1946, Jacksonville State has posted an incredible 23994-8 record at home. Under Crowe, the Gamecocks are 39-17 all-time at home.

One week after the second-largest crowd to ever watch JSU play saw the Gamecocks rally for a double-overtime win over Ole Miss, the largest home crowd in Gamecock history saw junior Marques Ivory find junior James Shaw for a 72-yard touchdown strike with 1:16 remaining and hand the Mocs (0-2) their second heartbreaking loss in as many weeks.

JSU Stadium just completed a $47 million expansion just in time for the 2010 season. The new facility consists of seven stories, with the bottom four floors dedicated to nearly 400 dorm beds. The top three floors will include 33 luxury skyboxes, a new press area, coaches booths, radio and

The record for a single-game crowd for a football game at Burgess-Snow Field at JSU Stadium was set in stadium dedication game of 2010 versus Chattanooga when 22,186 fans witnessed the Gamecocks claim a 21-17 win over the Mocs.

Clark has more than 20 years of coaching experience and has spent the last five years as the defensive coordinator at the University of South Alabama after serving as one of the most successful high school coaches in the State of Alabama. “Our vision and mission are winning conference championships and advancing to the postseason on a regular basis, and we feel like Bill Clark brings the experience and skills to help us achieve our goals,” JSU Athletics Director Warren Koegel said. “When you look at the success that Bill has enjoyed in our state, both on the collegiate and high school levels, we feel like he is the perfect fit to be our head football coach.” Clark’s defense at USA finished second in the Sun Belt Conference in total defense in 2012 as the Jaguars completed their first full season of competition in the league. South Alabama posted the best record of any Division I FCS Independent in 2011 after winning the first 17 games in the program’s history in 2009 and 2010. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to come back home and become the next football coach at Jacksonville State,” Clark said. “Jacksonville State has a great tradition and I’m looking forward to building off the past success, while also making us a national contender on the FCS level in the future.” South Alabama allowed only 13 points per game and 254.6 yards per game in 2010 and went 10-0. The Jaguars gave up only 5.9 points and 234 yards per game in 2009, when the defense forced 25 sacks and forced 23 turnovers in only seven games. “Coach Clark is dedicated to the success of our student-athletes both in the classroom and on the football field,” Koegel added. “We are also proud that both Bill and his wife, Jennifer, are graduates of Jacksonville State University and it became clear during the interview process that Coach Clark has great passion for Jacksonville State University.” Clark joined South Alabama in 2008 after spending nine years as head coach of the nationally ranked Prattville High School.

From modest beginnings, Jacksonville State University has evolved into the educational center of Northeast Alabama. The Alabama Legislature in the 1882-83 session created a state normal school when Governor Edward O’Neal signed into law a bill creating the school on February 22, 1883. Jacksonville State Normal School acquired the facilities and equipment of Calhoun College, consisting of 12 acres of land and a two-story brick building. The Board of Directors elected James G. Ryals, Jr., as the first president. The school opened with three instructors: W. J. Borden, Mathematics; Eliza A. Bowen, English; and Ida J. Woodward, primary department. As stipulated in the establishing act, the Normal School administered a preparatory school for children of the town and surrounding areas. At the end of the first year, on August 15, 1884, William Mark Hames, President of the Board of Directors, reported that funds totaling $4,751.25 had been received, including $2,500 from the state; that 25 students were enrolled in the normal school; and that 222 were in the preparatory school.

After the Gamecocks (0-1) switched things up early on offense and built a 14-7 lead in the beginning stages of the second quarter, the Razorbacks (1-0) rattled off 28-straight points to pull ahead. A young JSU squad ran out of steam on one of the biggest stages it has ever been on but impressed early in front of the second-largest crowd to ever see the Gamecocks play and just the 15th crowd of 20,000 or more to see them play in program history. Quarterback Tyler Wilson and his offense, projected to be one of the nation’s most prolific in 2012, got off to a solid start. He passed for 367 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Razorbacks to 564 yards, the most against a JSU defense since 2003. He completed 19-of-27 attempts, while his running game produced four more scores on the ground. The Gamecocks got 107 receiving yards from senior Alan Bonner, his second career game with over 100 yards, and 160 yards and two touchdowns on 14-for-28 passing by senior Marques Ivory. Freshman Troymaine Pope made his collegiate debut a memorable one, running for 65 yards on 14 carries to lead the Gamecocks on the ground.

ABOUT JSU

Ivory, a native of Warner Robins, Ga., had two touchdown passes in his return from a broken leg that ended his 2011 season in the opener. After a medical redshirt gave him another shot at his senior season, Ivory threw for the 160 yards and two touchdowns exactly one year after his injury. He also restarted his climb in the history books, tying Dieter Brock for eighth all-time with 27 career passing touchdowns. His second touchdown pass came just before the half, a 10-yard strike to Bonner in the front of the end zone that cut JSU’s halftime deficit to 35-21. Bonner’s scoring catch made him the first Gamecock to record a rushing and receiving touchdown in a game since Jamal Young against Murray State on Oct. 2, 2010.

HISTORY

RECORDS

After their freshman running back scored through the air, the Gamecocks then let a receiver score on the ground. Bonner took just his sixth career carry in from four yards for his first score, giving the Gamecocks a 14-7 advantage with just over 13 minutes left in the first half. Arkansas answered, scoring four touchdowns over the next 11 minutes to take control of the game.

OPPONENTS

After an early scoring drive from the homestanding Hogs, Pope made a splash the first time he touched the ball in a collegiate game. The true freshman from Anniston caught a swing pass from Ivory that went for 19 yards and JSU’s first points of the year.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Jacksonville State football team put an early scare into 10th ranked Arkansas and its 71,062 fans on Saturday night, but the high-octane Razorbacks handed the Gamecocks a 49-24 loss in the season opener for both teams.

The Gamecocks scored first in the second half, thanks to a 49-yard field goal from junior Griffin Thomas that cut the Hogs’ lead to 35-24. The kick was just the third field goal of his career and was the longest by a Gamecock since 2003. The Hogs answered with two scores on the Razorbacks’ next two drives to claim the deciding 49-24 advantage. On the defensive side of the ball, JSU did force three turnovers on the Hogs’ offense. The Gamecocks recovered three fumbles, one that was returned 49 yards by junior Rashad Smith, the Gamecocks’ longest return of a fumble since 2001. Smith added eight tackles, which tied senior Nick Johnson’s career high for the team lead. Sophomore Rashod Byers added seven stops in his first start on the defensive side of the ball, while senior DiMetrio Tyson recorded a pair of sacks. Score by Quarters Jacksonville State Arkansas

Jacksonville State - - - - - - - - - 27 Chattanooga - - - - - - - - - - - 24 JACKSONVILLE – Griffin Thomas had enjoyed modest success as a placekicker since enrolling at Jacksonville State two years ago. Before Saturday night, the junior from Snellville, Ga., had made a total of three field goals in a Gamecocks uniform – a 49-yarder a week earlier in the season opener at Arkansas and two kicks in a 2010 playoff loss to Wofford. One thing he had never done – in high school or college – was kick a game-winning field goal. Facing the most important kick of his career against Chattanooga, Thomas calmly booted a 37-yard field goal as time expired to lift No. 24 Jacksonville State to a thrilling 27-24 victory before an announced crowd of 18,993 at Burgess-Snow Field. The Gamecocks improved to 1-1. Jacksonville State, which led 24-10 midway through the third quarter, had seen the Mocs (0-2) scrap back to tie game with 39 seconds remaining. Jacob Huesman’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Ron Moore and the ensuing two-point conversion run by Keon Williams made it 24-24 and marked the first time the Gamecocks had not held the lead. Gabriel Chambers’ 34-yard return on the ensuing kickoff kept alive Jacksonville State’s hopes of avoiding overtime. Quarterback Marques Ivory then promptly moved the Gamecocks into Mocs territory with three straight completions. On second-and-10 at the UTC 33, DaMarcus James ran 13 yards up the middle and Jacksonville State managed to call a timeout with the scoreboard clock showing 0:01. That brought in Thomas, who made the first game-winning field goal by a Gamecocks placekicker since Steven Lee booted a 41-yarder to beat Alabama A&M in the ‘02 season opener.

James’ 43-yard run with 4:48 left before halftime and Thomas’ PAT stretched Jacksonville State’s lead to 17-0. But Chattanooga responded with a 53-yard scoring drive to end the half, capped off by Huesman’s 1-yard rush with only 1 second left.

OVC

Warren raced 75 yards with the return and Thomas tacked on the extra point to extend the lead to 10-0 at the 2:21 mark. It was the third-longest fumble return in school history and the longest by a Gamecock since 1962.

HISTORY

The Mocs drove to the JSU 29 on the next possession but soon find themselves trailing 10-0. Huesman, the son of Chattanooga head coach Russ Huesman, fumbled at the JSU 25, where it was picked up by Jacksonville State safety Pierre Warren.

RECORDS

Thomas’ kick made it 3-0 with 5:35 left in the first quarter.

REVIEW

Thomas’ night got off to a good start when he capped a 16-play JSU scoring drive in the first quarter with a 33-yard field goal. Taking over after a missed Mocs field goal attempt, the Gamecocks moved from their 20 to the UTC 16, consuming more than 7½ minutes.

back Marques Ivory. The native of Warner Robins, Ga., bounced back from an 0-for-6 start to complete 14 of his last 20 pass attempts with one score and two interceptions. He also moved up in the JSU record books, running his career passing yards to 3,243 and passing David Gulledge for ninth place in school history. His touchdown pass gives him 28 for his career, passing Ralph Brock in eighth in that category. EKU jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter on a Pryor pass to Denham and a run from the tailback to take early control of the game. JSU cut it the deficit to one possession early in the second quarter on a Coty Blanchard pass to Denzel Cheeks, which was followed by a twopoint conversion by Jerry Slota that made EKU’s lead 14-8. The Colonels ran away, scoring three more times before taking a 34-8 lead into the half and then once more early in the third quarter to make it a 37-8 game. Ivory found Gavin Ellis for the junior tight end’s first touchdown reception as a Gamecock, a 23-yard toss that made it 37-15 late in the third, but EKU answered with two more scores to make it 51-15 just 15 seconds into the fourth quarter. It marked just the second time the Gamecocks have allowed 50 points or 500 yards against an OVC opponent since joining the league in 2003. Sophomore DaMarcus James got JSU’s last score later in the fourth, a three-yard run that posted the final score on the board and capped a 10-carry, 65-yard night for the Demopolis, Ala., native. Senior Washaun Ealey had 12 rushed for 47 yards. In his first game of the season after missing the first two to a knee injury, senior wide receiver Trey Smith led JSU with three catches for 64 yards. Freshman Luke Smith, who entered the game without a catch in his young career, had three for 45 yards before the final horn blew. In the return game, sophomore Gabriel Chambers returned six kickoffs for 186 yards, including a 73-yard return in the first quarter. Sophomore Ben Endress notched a career-high 11 tackles for the JSU defense, while junior Rashad Smith added nine. Score by Quarters 1 Jacksonville State 0 Eastern Kentucky 14

Jacksonville State - - - - - - - - - 31 Southeast Missouri - - - - - - - - 16 JACKSONVILLE – Fall Preview Day on the Jacksonville State campus may have been a preview of what awaits the Gamecocks’ remaining opponents. Sophomore DaMarcus James ran for 149 yards and two touchdowns and senior quarterback Marques Ivory passed for 161 yards and two TDs as Jacksonville State defeated Southeast Missouri State 31-16 before a crowd of 16,842 at Burgess-Snow Field at JSU Stadium. The Gamecocks improved to 2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Ohio Valley Conference. Jacksonville State won with an effective, ball-control offensive game plan. All five of JSU’s scoring drives took at least nine plays and all of them covered at least 60 yards. “I felt like we had a pretty good tempo throughout the whole game,” Ivory said, “and it was actually better than how we practiced. Everybody got up to the line and we got to see what they were doing. “We called the correct plays and the offensive line did a great job. We had been telling them all week that they controlled everything that we’re going to do, and when they play great, we’ll play great.” “We preached all week that we’re going to dominate up front,” said sophomore center Max Holcombe. “The better the offensive line plays, the better the whole offense runs. And when we’re able to run the ball it makes it easier on Marques throwing the ball.”

The Gamecocks answered with a long drive of their own to pull even at 7-7.

Facing third-and-4 late in the first quarter, Ivory hooked up with Kevyn Cooper for a 14-yard touchdown. Griffin Thomas’ PAT tied it at 7-7 with 1:12 left.

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – It took a full quarter for Jacksonville State’s offense to get cranked up against Tennessee Tech Saturday night. Once it did, the host Golden Eagles couldn’t stop the Gamecocks.

RECORDS

Terrell’s 37-yard run on second down quickly got the Redhawks out of the hole. SEMO moved to the Gamecocks 12, but an 11-yard quarterback sack by JSU’s Caleb Lawrence and DiMetrio Tyson halted the momentum and Drew Geldbach came in to kick a 42-yard field goal with 6:21 left in first half.

COACHES

Jacksonville State received the opening kickoff and worked its way into SEMO territory, but the drive stalled and the Gamecocks were forced to punt. Coty Blanchard’s perfect kick nestled on the 1, putting the Redhawks offense in an early predicament – which they promptly worked out of by driving 99 yards for the game’s first score.

“Just because DaMarcus is listed as a ‘B’ back on the depth chart doesn’t mean he’s a ‘B’ player,” said Jacksonville State head coach Jack Crowe.

INTRO

James sealed the victory with a slashing 8-yard run up the middle with just over two minutes remaining to give the Gamecocks a 31-16 lead. His 149-yard rushing effort marked a career high, topping his 120-yard output earlier this season against Chattanooga.

A 55-yard Tennessee Tech punt pinned the Gamecocks at the 3 on their next possession. On the drive’s fourth play, Ivory hit Brown in stride in front of the Golden Eagles’ bench and the freshman outran the defenders to complete the 86-yard touchdown pass. Thomas tacked on the extra point to give the Gamecocks their first lead, 30-28, with 1:06 remaining in the third quarter. The teams combined for 321 yards and 31 points during the frenetic third quarter. The Gamecocks dominated the second quarter – piling up 170 yards to Tennessee Tech’s 33 – and came away with points on all three of their drives to pull with a point (14-13) at halftime. Thomas kicked field goals of 34 and 32 yards and DaMarcus James scored on a 4-yard run. James finished with a game-high 130 yards on 28 carries. The Golden Eagles struck first, piecing together a 69-yard, five-play drive on their second possession. Tre Lamb connected with Cody Matthews for 34 yards and to Stephen Bush for 17 more as Tennessee Tech drove into the red zone.

Eastern Illinois - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 31 Jacksonville State - - - - - - - - - - - - 28 CHARLESTON, Ill. – Senior Washaun Ealey led the most productive running attack Eastern Illinois has seen this season, but turnovers did the Gamecocks in in a 31—28 loss to the Panthers on Saturday. Ealey ran for 149 yards and three scores on 23 carries to lead a 290-yard ground attack for the Gamecocks (3-3, 2-2 Ohio Valley Conference), but five turnovers ended up proving too costly for JSU to overcome. The Panthers (4-3, 3-1 OVC) capitalized on the JSU miscues and handed JSU its first loss in the series in three years. Senior Quarterback Marques Ivory was 14-for-26 passing for 160 yards, but a career-high three interceptions and a fumble lost set up a high-octane EIU offense that got just enough offense to pull off the win. Ealey averaged 6.5 yards per carry on the day to continue what has been a dominant two-year career against the Panthers. A year ago, he ran for 155 yards in a win over EIU at Burgess-Snow Field, his second-best single game as a Gamecock. Saturday’s output was his third best and was the first 100-yard rushing performance against the Panthers this season, giving him 304 yards in two career games against EIU. EIU quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 220 yards and two interceptions on 26-for-51 passing, but had one big touchdown pass. It came with 3:37 to play and found the hands of Chris Wright in the end zone to erase a 28-24 JSU lead and give EIU the deciding lead. Freshman Jermaine Hough had 10 tackles for JSU after entering the game with just nine in his young career. Junior Rashad Smith led JSU’s defense with 13 tackles on a day that saw the Gamecocks hold EIU to just 381 yards on 88 plays, the Panthers’ second-worst offensive output of the season. Jake Walker led Eastern Illinois on the ground with 103 yards and a touchdown, while Taylor Duncan scored on his 52-yard day. Senior Alan Bonner, back after missing last week with an injury, led the Gamecocks receiving corps with 67 yards on five catches. Jacksonville State jumped on the Panthers early, forcing a two-yard punt by Scott Weatherford that set up the Gamecocks on the EIU 45. After a 15-yard Ivory pass to Trey Smith and a 27-yard run by Ealey, his longest of the year to that point, Ealey punched it in from three yards out to give the Gamecocks their quickest score of the year with 12:03 still to play in the first quarter. JSU’s defense held the Panthers scoreless throughout the first quarter, the first time they have failed to score in the first 15 minutes this season, and then put another touchdown on the board early in the second quarter. This time it was Blanchard’s turn to lead the scoring drive, a 51-yard-eight play one that was capped when he found a wide open Denzel Cheeks in the end zone from one yard out. The score gave JSU a 14-0 lead with 13:49 remaining in the half. The tables turned at that point for JSU’s offense, which turned it over on four-straight possessions, three of which led to EIU points and gave the Panthers a 17-14 lead at the half. A pair of Ivory turnovers on third down let the Panthers back in it and the fourth set up an EIU field goal on the final play of the half. The first was a scramble that saw him cough up the ball and set up the Panthers on the Gamecock 27 yard line. EIU punched it in to cut the JSU lead in half and then tied it up with just under six minutes left in the half, when Tavares Crawford intercepted the JSU quarterback and returned it 39 yards for a score. DaMarcus James fumbled on JSU’s next drive, but Rashod Byers’ first career pick thwarted another EIU threat. Ivory’s second pick came on a deep try down the right sideline that was hauled in by Jourdan Wickliffe with just under a minute left in the half. Garoppolo led the Panthers to the JSU 36, from where Cameron Berra nailed a 43-yard field goal to give EIU the three-point lead. The Gamecocks started the second half with a bang, thanks to a 66-yard return on the opening kickoff by freshman Telvin Brown that set up a 33-yard scoring drive that was all done by Ealey. The senior tailback from Stillmore, Ga., needed four carries, the last from two yards out, to give JSU the lead back at 21-17. After Eastern Illinois blocked Griffin Thomas’ 37-yard field goal attempt late in the third, the Panthers mounted an 80-yard drive that was finished by a five-yard Taylor Duncan touchdown run. The score came on the first play of the fourth quarter and put the Panthers back on top, 24-21. The Gamecocks got a big special teams play that set up another Ealey score and gave them

the lead back. Senior Francis Duncan blocked a Weatherford punt that set JSU up on the Panthers’ 11. Two Ealey carries later, the Gamecocks were back on top 28-24 with just over nine minutes to play. After the two exchanged possessions, EIU jumped back on top with 3:37 to play, thanks to a 15-yard Garoppolo pass to Chris Wright that gave the Panthers a 31-28 lead.

Jacksonville State (4-3, 3-2 Ohio Valley Conference) took advantage of costly mistakes by the Tigers in the waning seconds of regulation and on their possession in overtime. Tennessee State’s Jamin Godfrey was lined up for a 42-yard field goal attempt with four seconds in regulation. His kick split the uprights, but TSU was flagged for a false start, pushing the Tigers back five yards. Godfrey instead was forced to try a 47-yarder that fell wide right, sending the game into OT. TSU (7-1, 3-1) had first possession in overtime and quickly drove to 13 yards to the Gamecocks 12. With his team seemingly in position for a chip-shot field goal, Tigers quarterback Michael German got sacked for a 13-yard loss by JSU defensive end Mikel Whittier on third down. “I thought the most impressive thing we did during the game was that we put pressure on their quarterback,” said Crowe. “That’s pretty special.” That brought on Godfrey for another 42-yard attempt, which this time sailed wide left. Runs by Washaun Ealey then moved Jacksonville State to the TSU 18. But Coty Blanchard, in the game after starting quarterback Marques Ivory was forced out with a hamstring injury, was sacked for a nine-yard loss to make Thomas’ field goal attempt more difficult. Turned out to be no problem. Thomas, who beat Chattanooga with a 37-yard field goal as time expired on Sept. 8, kicked the 44-yarder with ease to keep the Gamecocks alive in the OVC race. Tennessee State accumulated 302 first-half yards to take a 21-14 lead at intermission. The Gamecocks, however, answered with two touchdowns in the third quarter, an 8-yard run by Ealey and a 2-yard scramble by Blanchard that put JSU ahead 28-21 with 3:08 left in the third. German, who threw for 311 yards and three touchdowns, finished off a nine-play, 70-yard scoring march with an 11-yard toss to Travis James. Godfrey’s extra point made it 28-all, the third tie of the game.

OUTLOOK

Ivory marched his offense down the field, but with no time outs, he was flushed from the pocket and his attempt to get rid of the ball fell into Ealey’s hands. He couldn’t get out of bounds, and JSU didn’t have enough time to spike the ball to stop the clock and set up a game-tying field goal attempt.

INTRO

Ivory threw his third pick of the day on JSU’s first comeback attempt, one that appeared to set up the Panthers to put the game away. JSU’s defense got a stop, however, thanks to junior James Powell’s first career interception that gave the Gamecocks the ball with 1:17 remaining.

I E

Troymaine Pope – who later left with an injury – gave the Gamecocks a 7-0 lead with a 2-yard TD run on their first drive of the game. His run completed a 46-yard drive set up by freshman cornerback Jermaine Hough’s first career interception. Ealey caught a 44-yard pass from Ivory early in the second quarter and Thomas tacked on the extra point to give JSU a 14-7 lead, the last time it led until Blanchard’s scramble for TD late in the third. Ealey finished with a hard-fought 122 yards on 33 carries and also caught five passes for 82 yards. But the Tigers scored two touchdowns in a 2:25 span midway through the second quarter – the first a 25-yard pass to James from German, followed by a 42-yard run by Trabis Ware for a 21-14 lead they held onto until halftime.

ing to halt the Racers’ final realistic threat. Murray State blocked a later Thomas field goal try and took over deep in its own territory with 10 seconds remaining. But the game ended when DiMetrio Tyson sacked Brockman as time expired. JSU became the first OVC team to hold Murray State (3-5, 2-3) below 36 points. The Racers came in averaging 57.5 points and 458.2 passing yards in their first four OVC games – the Gamecocks allowed just 255 through the air. “I’m proud of be the coach of this football team and I can’t wait to line ‘em up and play the rest of the season,” Crowe said. “You don’t feel good when you don’t win homecoming at JSU. I’ll remember this one, for sure.” Jacksonville State limited Murray State to only 93 total yards after halftime. The Racers’ streak of having scored in 23 consecutive quarters ended when they failed to put points on the scoreboard in the fourth, a mark dating back to Sept. 15. Ealey’s 2-yard run on the first possession after halftime finished off a 65-yard, eight-play drive to put JSU ahead 35-28. Murray State, however, pulled even late in the third quarter after pouncing on Jacksonville State’s third fumble. The Racers quickly moved 55 yards in five plays and forged the fifth tie of the day, 35-35, when Duane Brady scored on a 4-yard run. The teams combined for 56 points and 472 total yards during the frenetic first half that ended deadlocked at 28-all and saw Brockman become the OVC’s all-time passing leader. The game was tied four times in the first 30 minutes. Each team committed two first-half turnovers and all four miscues were converted into touchdowns. The first of Brockman’s two interceptions, this one by freshman cornerback Jermaine Hough on Murray State’s second possession, set up the Gamecocks’ first score. Hough returned the interception – his third in two games – 15 yards to the Racers 29. Ealey ran to the end zone on first down and Thomas kicked the first of his five extra points for a 7-0 Jax State lead at the 11:13 mark of the first quarter. The Racers came back with a 74-yard drive to pull even. Brockman finished off the eight-play march by scrambling two yards and Jordan Benton added the PAT to make it 7-7 with 8:41 left in the first. Murray State grabbed its first lead after the Gamecocks were forced to punt. Brockman had completions of 16 and 36 yards and Brady ran in from the 12 with 5:54 on the clock for a 14-7 Racers lead.

JACKSONVILLE – A homecoming crowd of 17,087 at Burgess-Snow Field saw Jacksonville State continue its all-time dominance of Murray State and give head coach Jack Crowe his 100th career victory.

Another Brockman interception, this one by JSU freshman Raheam Buxton, helped the Gamecocks tie it for a second time, with Ealey getting his second touchdown on a 1-yard run with 1:41 to go in the first quarter.

Washaun Ealey ran for 146 yards and three touchdowns as the Gamecocks beat the Racers 38-35 Saturday for their fourth victory in the last five games. Jacksonville State is 5-3 overall and remains in the hunt for the Ohio Valley Conference title at 4-2.

Marques Ivory threw touchdown passes of 41 and 4 yards to Telvin Brown and Alan Bonner, respectively, during the second quarter. Ivory completed 15-of-31 passes for 205 yards and was not intercepted during the contest.

Ealey’s 37 carries were the second-most in a game in school history.

Murray State’s second-quarter scores came on a 6-yard run by Jaamal Brown and Brockman’s 1-yard quarterback sneak.

Griffin Thomas kicked the go-ahead field goal with 8:51 left and the Gamecocks’ Rashod Byers intercepted record-setting quarterback Casey Brockman with just over two minutes remain-

Martin took just 121 seconds to get on the scoreboard, orchestrating a seven-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a nine-yard pass from Carr to Quentin Sims and gave UTM a 7-0 lead with 12:59 left iin the opeing quarter. A little over seven minutes later, Carr found Sims again from eight yards out to give the Skyhawks a 14-0 lead. The Gamecocks cut that deficit in half with a quick strike from Ivory to Bonner, a 66-yard scoring pass that was the Gamecocks’ second longest play from scrimmage this season. The play made it a 14-7 game, but Carr found Kevin Barfield from 38 yards out and then Quentin Sims from 33 yards to jump out to a 28-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Gamecocks cut their deficit in half again, this time on a seven-yard touchdown pass from Ivory to Trey Smith with 10:30 left in the first half. The 11-play drive went 72 yards and took just over four minutes off of the clock. After Carr’s fifth touchdown pass of the day and his fourth to Sims gave the Skyhawks a 35-14, lead, UTM gift wrapped a JSU scoring drive that cut the Skyhawks’ lead to 35-21 just before the half. Three personal fouls gave the Gamecocks 45 of their 72 yards on the drive. Ivory found Bonner for the second time in the game, this time for a 15-yard score that cut JSU’s deficit to two touchdowns at the intermission. JSU took its momentum into the second half and cut UTM’s lead to 35-28 on the opening drive of the half. Ivory’s fourth touchdown pass of the day and the third to Bonner came from 34 yards out with 13:25 left in the third quarter.

Carr and the Skyhawks answered with just under three minutes left in the third quarter, when he found Sims in the end zone for the fifth time to put the Skyhawks back on top by a touchdown, 42-35 with 2:55 left in the third.

OVC

After a defensive stop, Ivory got the ball back and tied the game, this time with a 35-yard strike over the middle to Bonner. The record-breaking catch for Bonner came with 7:34 left in the third and tied the score for the first time since it was 0-0 in the game’s first two minutes.

HISTORY

Senior Alan Bonner caught a school-record five touchdown passes on a day in which senior Marques Ivory tossed a school-record six touchdown passes, but it was the Skyhawks’ Derek Carr and Quentin Sims would come out on top in a shootout to stay in the running for the Ohio Valley Conference title. The Gamecocks drop to 5-4 on the year and 4-3 in OVC play,

Defensively, three JSU sophomores recorded at least 10 tackles, with Rashod Byers wrapping up a career-best 15, eight more than his previous high. Ben Endress and Pierre Warren each had 10 tackles in a game that saw five of JSU’s top six tacklers playing in the backfield.

I E

The Gamecocks answered on their ensuing possession with Bonner’s fifth scoring catch, a one-handed grab of a 12-yard Ivory pass with 13:48 to play. Griffin Thomas missed the extra point, however, his first miss of the year, leaving UTM up by one. The Skyhawks mounted their longest drive of the day, a 15-play, 88-yard one that gave them a 49-41 lead and the Gamecocks the ball with 5:31 to play. Ivory drove JSU down the field and into the end zone with 41 ticks on the clock to cut the score to 49-47, but Washaun Ealey’s two-yard touchdown run, the first rushing score by either team, wouldn’t be enough. Ivory’s two-point conversion attempt found Bonner, but his foot was just out of bounds in the back of the end zone. Thomas’ on-side kick attempt hit a JSU player one-yard too soon, allowing the Skyhawks to run the clock out. Score by Quarters 1 Jacksonville State 7 UT Martin 28

Jacksonville State - - - - - - - - - 38 Austin Peay - - - - - - - - - - - - 23 JACKSONVILLE – Jack Crowe thought he’d delivered the desired halftime message to his Jacksonville State football team as he turned to leave the locker room late Saturday afternoon at Burgess-Snow Field. Then he heard some of his seniors speak up. Loud and clear. “I got through with my two cents,” Crowe said, “and then they got up and took care (of the rest).” The Gamecocks began the second half trailing one-win Austin Peay by two points. They ended it with a 38-23 victory in front of an announced crowd of 11,523, running their record to 6-4 overall and 5-3 in the Ohio Valley Conference. “One thing I like about this team is that our senior leadership is very vocal,” said tailback Washaun Ealey, one of 13 seniors who helped the Gamecocks finish 5-0 at home this season. “We’ll call each other out. We knew they weren’t two points better than us. We made our adjustments, talked a little trash and got motivated.” The defense, torched for 319 yards up to that point, buckled down, forcing a pair of threeand-outs. And the offense, on the field for only 22 plays in the first 30 minutes, went to work. Senior quarterback Marques Ivory capped off a five-play, 66-yard drive with a 10-yard touchdown run off the read option. He followed that score with a 10-yard TD pass to Ealey five minutes later. Backup quarterback Coty Blanchard connected with Ealey again on the next drive from 27 yards out. In a 10-minute span, Jacksonville State went from 16-14 down to the Governors (1-9, 0-7) to leading 35-16. “Our fans mean the world to us. I think winning at home is really important,” said Crowe, who saw his team post its 18th come-from-behind win since the start of the 2010 season. “Coming out in the second half, I think we played better, (but) we were really struggling to keep our focus defensively. We gave up more offensive yards to them than any other team. They had 30 more plays (than us). Austin Peay opened up firing, quarterback Jake Ryan in particular. He shrugged off a firstdrive interception by leading back-to-back scoring drives, culminating in a touchdown passes of 24 yards to Mikhail Creech and 20 yards to Devin Stark. “We didn’t get off to a good start,” Crowe said. The Gamecocks appeared to steady the ship when DaMarcus James crashed into the end zone from 7 yards out -- one play after a 71-yard reception by senior Alan Bonner -- less than two minutes into the second quarter. Ealey followed that with a 1-yard TD run six minutes later to knot the score at 14-all. The Governors had some chances to tack on more points, but kicker Stephen Stansell missed a 30-yard field goal and had a 31-yarder blocked. They did get a bit of a momentum boost late in the half, however, when Jacksonville State had a special teams boo-boo. A punt snap near the goal line sailed over the head of Hamish MacInnes, who directed the ball out of the back of the end zone for a safety with 1:48 left in the second quarter. Minutes later, the Gamecock seniors were sparing no words with their teammates. “We came out kind of flat, in practice mode,” said Ealey, who finished with 80 yards rushing and another 38 receiving. “But we came together as a team.” After racing past Austin Peay in the third quarter, Jacksonville State had to weather several threats over the final 15 minutes. The Governors got within 35-23 on Ryan’s 9-yard TD pass to Reco Williams at the 14:15 mark, and they reached the Gamecocks’ 14- and 24-yard line on two other drives later in the quarter, only to turn the ball over on downs. A 60-yard run by James (13 carries, 149 yards) with less than three minutes to play basically settled matters, leaving Ivory and his fellow seniors feeling good about their last game at home. “It’s a good thing,” said Ivory, who completed 10-of-14 passes for 107 yards. “To go undefeated at home, that’s a hard thing to do.”

Record: (1-9,0-7) Record: (6-4,5-3)

The Gamecocks came away without points on their only two drives deep into Florida territory, failing to convert field goals of 25 and 36 yards. It marked the first time Jacksonville State has been shutout in 133 games, a streak dating back to a 28-0 loss to Troy in 2000. “We had some opportunities in the first half,” said Jacksonville State coach Jack Crowe. “That’s the first time we’ve been shut out in a long time. But if you’re going to have it happen, you want it to be against a quality team like they are.” “I don’t know if there’s a better defense in the country,” said second-year Gators head coach Will Muschamp, a one-time graduate assistant at Jacksonville State. “We’re playing very well right now.”

The pass play was Jacksonville State’s longest non-scoring play from scrimmage since moving up to Division I.

OVC

Marques Ivory completed a short pass to Kevyn Cooper, who was tackled by two Florida defenders. Cooper fell on top of one of the Gators but never touched the turf, springing to his feet and sprinting down the sideline in front of Florida’s players and coaches for a 76-yard gain to the UF 7.

“We ran the hitch outside and the corner came straight at my knees and I landed on him,” said Cooper. “I didn’t hear the whistle, so I just kept running.” The opening drive stalled, however, and the Gamecocks came away empty-handed when Griffin Thomas’ 25-yard field goal attempt sailed left with 12:53 remaining in first quarter. The Gators’ offense responded with a methodical 80-yard march after the missed JSU field goal try. Gillislee, who entered the game as the Southeastern Conference’s fourth-leading rusher with 842 yards, was the workhorse with eight carries on the 12-play march. He completed the drive with a seven-yard run up the middle at 6:02 mark in the first quarter. Gillislee finished with 122 yards on 20 carries. Florida moved 61 yards in six plays to increase its lead to 10-0 on the next drive. Gillislee’s 46-yard run got the Gators deep into Gamecocks’ territory, but the drive stalled at the JSU 4 and Sturgis came in to kick a 21-yard field goal with 2:22 left in the first.

Game Summaries

I E

Ivory connected on four consecutive passes during a second-quarter drive as Jacksonville marched from its 10 to Florida’s 19. But Griffin missed a 36-yard attempt, this time wide to the right, with just under six minutes left before halftime.

An ill-advised decision by Alan Bonner to call a fair catch on a Gators punt, coupled with a holding penalty, pinned the Gamecocks at the 2 early in the third quarter. After failing to gain any yardage with two runs, Ivory attempted to pass from the end zone on third down. Florida linebacker Jonathan Bostic stepped in front of Ivory’s pass and returned it seven yards for a touchdown with 10:38 left in the third quarter. Sturgis added field goals of 44 and 47 yards in the fourth quarter to conclude the scoring. Ivory, in his final game with the Gamecocks, completed 14-of-25 passes for 169 yards and moved past Ryan Perrilloux into fifth place on the school’s all-time passing list. Ivory passed for 2,086 yards as a senior, the eighth time 2,000-yard passing season in JSU history.
