That’s right TSU scored on their first play from scrimmage and that set the tone for the next 5 quarters of competition.  After TSU handled business on the field the band handled business from the stands in the Battle of The Bands”.

JSU quarterback, LaMontiez Ivy, threw for 72more yards than Carter.  However, Carter scored three touchdowns to his two.  Telvin Hooks (TSU) rushed for 68 yards on 14 carries, scoring two touchdowns.  Robert Johnson (JSU) rushed for 44 yards on 13 carries, scoring one touchdown.
