1. Eagles Win Overtime Thriller

[“All week what we’ve hammered to the guys is the tradition and the win streaks that have been here at Paulson Stadium, and how special playing at home is. We came out fired up tonight – we played four-and-a-half quarters of really intense (football) the whole game, we played a good football team that executed well,” said Hatcher. “I’m proud of our guys. It’s the first overtime victory that I’ve ever been associated with.”]


2. Men’s Soccer Falls to Campbell 2-0

[The Georgia Southern Men’s Soccer team held Campbell scoreless in the first half, but gave up two second half goals and lost 2-0.]


3. Volleyball Drops Five Setter to Eastern Michigan

[“I thought we played hard, it was a good effort,” said GSU head coach Chad Callihan. “We just couldn’t sustain intensity through the match and even probably more so we couldn’t sustain our ball control. I think that was the difference. It was a matchup of size versus speed. When we were in system our speed was doing some good things for us we just couldn’t stay in system enough to take advantage of that.”]


4. Eagles Win Thriller in OT, 34-27!

[“We just had to make big plays,” explained Henton. “We have a lot of trust on this team starting with the offensive line. You just have to go with the play and trust that your teammates will be there ready to go.”]


5. Henton makes key plays in GSU win

[Next up for Henton was some relaxation in front of the television to watch his old team, Ohio State, play Southern California. Who did he root for? "Ohio State, of course," Henton said.]

6. GSU pulls out overtime victory

["I told you, it's going to be a wild ride," GSU coach Chris Hatcher said for the second consecutive week after the Eagles rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit.]


7. Henton sparks Georgia Southern to rally

["In 2005, we let them off the hook, and in 2008 it was a different version, same result," Northeastern head coach Rocky Hager said. "The two fumbles absolutely killed us. We moved the ball reasonably well the whole game, but we stopped ourselves."]


8. Huskies squander chance for upset

[Anthony Orio, who completed 24 of 38 passes for 287 yards and a TD, was devastated by the defeat. "We beat ourselves," he said. "We had the lead for 58 minutes and then gave the game away. I feel awful."]


9. Elon's prolific offense leads the way

[The impressive victory put the No. 18 Phoenix at 2-1 for the season. They begin conference play next week at No. 15 Georgia Southern. The Golden Eagles defeated Northeastern on Saturday to improve their record to 2-1 on the year. Both the players and coaches were reassuring that this game would not cause them to be overconfident heading into next weeks’ game. “It’s a whole different animal. We’re playing down there in a hostile environment and we have to take our game to a new level,” said Lembo.]


10. Jackrabbits open new football era

["Those are the things that we talk about that I really think are universal whether we're playing a veer team or whether we're playing Georgia Southern it doesn't matter."]
