Georgia State Vs. Maine Final Score: Panthers drop Bill Curry's final game, 51-7

Kevin C. Cox

The Panthers failed to end Bill Curry's career with a win Saturday as Georgia State was annihilated, 51-7, by Maine.

The Georgia State Panthers were unable to pull out the victory in the final game of head coach Bill Curry's career, losing to Maine 51-7 on the road Saturday.

By the time the second quarter was almost over, Maine had already jumped out to a 31-0 lead, with QB Marcus Wasilewski tossing a quick three touchdowns.

Ben McLane connected with Danny Williams for a 13-yard touchdown to cap off a solid two-minute drill at the end of the first half but that's all that the Panthers would get. Maine continued to dominate the second half with Wasilewski tossing another touchdown.

McLane gave away three interceptions on the day for the Panthers while completing just 12 of his 29 passes. The only thing working for Georgia State was Travis Evans on the ground (17 carries, 77 yards) but the run game quickly became irrelevant due to the score.

Curry, who has had coaching stops at Georgia Tech, Alabama and Kentucky, announced his retirement before the start of the season. Unfortunately, the Georgia State program that he took under his wing five years ago couldn't exactly send him out in style, with this loss dropping them to 1-10 on the year.
