Derrick Gore topped UL Monroe on the ground with 19 carries for 114 yards and a trip to the end zone while Marcus Green hauled in scoring receptions of 80 yards and 69 yards.
The South Alabama Jaguars will have to wait another year to make a run at a Bowl after a 38-14 defeat at Arkansas State left the team with a 2-7 record. South Alabama had no answers on either side of the ball as they were outgained 509-249.
Jaguars quarterback Evan Orth completed 7-15 for 63 yards and a touchdown with another 22 yards coming on eight runs. Fellow signal caller Cephus Johnson hit 5-7 for 30 yards and another score but the USA passing game wasn’t able to stretch the field.
