The Texas State Bobcats typically have all the answers at home, but last week South Alabama proved too difficult a challenge. South Alabama strolled past Texas State with points to spare, taking the contest 38-21. The victory came about even with South Alabama handicapping themselves with 93 penalty yards. South Alabama QB Carter Bradley was slinging it as he passed for four TDs and 274 yards on 34 attempts. Bradley's performance made up for a slower game against the Georgia Southern Eagles two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, it was all tied up 17-17 at halftime, but the Golden Eagles were not quite the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers' equal in the second half when they met last week. Southern Miss fell just short of the Chanticleers by a score of 26-23. No one had a standout game offensively for Southern Miss, but they got scores from WR Tiaquelin Mims and RB Kenyon Clay.
