Red Wolves Too Much For Jaguars


JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) – Chris Humes returned a fumble 60 yards for a touchdown, and Arkansas State held South Alabama to 255 total yards in a 17-7 win on Saturday night.

After a scoreless first quarter, South Alabama moved the ball to Arkansas State’s 41-yard line. Kevin Kutchera caught a pass from Cole Garvin, but the Red Wolves defense swarmed Kutchera, with Humes forcing the fumble and returning it for the touchdown with 12:50 left in the half.

Arkansas State (2-4, 2-0 Sun Belt) forced a three-and-out on the ensuing Jaguars possession, and Johnston White capped an 11-play drive with a 14-yard TD run to make it 14-0.

White rushed for 58 yards on 12 carries. Warren Wand added 88 yards rushing as Arkansas State finished with 204 yards on 54 attempts.

After J.D. Houston’s 25-yard field goal in the third quarter made it 17-0, Xavier Johnson’s 2-yard scoring run late in the fourth put South Alabama (3-2, 0-3) on the board.
