The Georgia Southern Eagles forced what looked to be a fourth down near the red zone, but LB Josh Rowe was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver. It was sort of borderline, but the 12-yard supplement and automatic first down set up a six-yard touchdown pass from Hens QB Pat Devlin to WR Mark Schenauer. This was the receiver’s second on the year a week after catching his first. Devlin’s touchdown-to-interception ratio: 21-to-two.
According to ESPN’s Pam Ward, the Hens are 10-0 when scoring first.
The Eagles offense, which looked magnificent on its first outing, suffered a three-and-out of its own on its second drive. They’re now driving, with QB Jaybo Shaw converting a first down, and doing some of that wacky trips stack formation stuff Paul Johnson used to do at Hawaii. <—- schooling you
The Eagles running game hasn’t wandered too far from the outside pitch, other than a Shaw dive or few. Shaw has completed none of his three passes.
