MOBILE, Ala. (AP) – Brandon Silvers passed for a career-high 395 yards and rallied Troy with the final 18 points to beat South Alabama 28-21 on Thursday night.

Silvers delivered the key strike on a 42-yard pass to Sidney Davis that moved the Trojans (6-1, 4-0 Sun Belt Conference) to the 1 with 1:22 left. The South Alabama (3-4, 0-4) defense then allowed Jordan Chunn a free path into the end zone, conceding the go-ahead score to preserve some time for a response.

But South Alabama’s Dallas Davis was mostly stifled, getting sacked twice on the final drive. He rolled out on the final play and completed a deep throw to Kevin Kutchera near the 25. Kutchera spun free toward some open field but was caught from behind by Blace Brown, who forced a fumble to secure the win.

Davis had 195 yards passing and Kutchera caught three passes for 92 yards.
