Mocs trail JSU at half

JACKSONVILLE, Ala. — The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team trails No. 24 Jacksonville State 17-7 at the half tonight at JSU Stadium.

Huesman rushed for 125 yards on 13 carries in the half and was 5-for-10 passing for 26 yards.

After his long run to start the game, UTC had to settle for a field goal attempt and Nick Pollard missed from 30 yards.

Jacksonville State kicked a field goal on its first drive and went up 10-0 after a Huesman fumble was returned 75 yards for a score. A 43-yard run by JSU’s DaMarcus James put the Gamecocks up 17-0.

Keon Williams had 46 yards on 13 carries at the half and Tommy Hudson had four receptions for 20 yards.
