- JACKSONVILLE — The momentum built during the abbreviated fall 2020 campaign carried over to spring as No. 16 Jacksonville State defeated Tennessee Tech 27-10 on Sunday for its fourth straight win.
The Gamecocks (4-1, 1-0) relied on an opportunistic defense that forced the No. 23 Golden Eagles into five turnovers and a punishing ground game that rolled up 274 yards to win their league opener in their final season as an Ohio Valley Conference member.
Uriah West ran for 106 yards – his second straight 100-yard rushing performance – with one touchdown, Zion Webb rushed for 70 and Pat Jackson finished with 62 yards as Jacksonville State outgained Tennessee Tech 399-227 and beat the Golden Eagles (1-1, 0-1) for the eighth time in the last nine meetings.
