1. Eagles Win Overtime Thriller

[Antonio Henton scored a 25-yard touchdown run in the first overtime, then the defense held Northeastern on fourth down as Georgia Southern defeated the Huskies 34-27 Saturday night (Sept. 13) at Paulson Stadium. The Eagles (2-1 overall) snapped a four-game losing streak in overtime, last winning in extra periods three years ago at Northeastern.]


2. Overtime is too much time

[Elon is not Austin Peay or Northeastern and I don’t think I have to remind anyone of what happened last year. If the Eagles play consistent, smart football they will have a good chance to come away with a win this Saturday.]


3. Eagles turn attention to Phoenix, SoCon

["Each week we get a little bit closer to knowing who we are as a football team. Right now, we may not be good enough to blow people out — we may never be that way," Hatcher said. "The bottom line is, our team's finding a way to win and when it's all said and done, that's what it's all about."]


4. Rain Shortens First Day Of Raines Development Group Intercollegiate

[The Blue Hose are currently in a tie for 14th place after posting a first round score of 301 as a team. Georgia Southern is leading the event with a first round tally of 279.]


5. Rested Terriers ready to take on USC

[“Playing South Carolina is huge for us,” he said. “In reality, out of the next two games, you have to look at Georgia Southern as the most important game.”In fact, freshman running back Eric Breitenstein (hamstring) and senior safety Greg Gasparato (knee) likely will be held out just to make sure they are ready for the showdown in Statesboro, Ga. “Our goal was to be as good and as healthy as possible for Georgia Southern,” Ayers said. “As physical as South Carolina plays, it’s going to be difficult.”]
