Jags win a messy game to stay undefeated

September 2, 2011 · By · Filed Under Football 

South Alabama extends their winning streak to 18 games with their win over West Alabama Thursday night 20-10. However two adjectives describing what people saw during the game was uncharacteristic for this team. Inconsistent and messy.

The four turnovers in the first half very uncharacteristic for the Jaguars. Particularly three interceptions by C.J. Bennett, who only threw two all last season. The Jaguar defense stepped up and refused to allow West Alabama to capitalize on them.

Opening game jitters? Maybe. But if you know these coaches and players, you also know that they will work hard to correct these mistakes. Are they ready for their back-to-back trips to NC State and Kent State? Not on Thursday night but they have two weeks to get there.

Coach Jones liked one aspect of the game, it will help to keep the team honest. “We do have to look at ourselves honestly and not through rose-colored glasses,” he said.

Check back for a full breakdown of the game soon.
