Texas State 33, South Alabama 31

Associated Press

SAN MARCOS, Texas - Brady McBride scored on the first possession of the fourth overtime and Texas State held on to beat South Alabama 33-31.

Eric Sutton, a graduate transfer from SMU, deflected a pass from South Alabama's Jake Bentley in the end zone on the final play.

South Alabama (3-2, 0-2 Sun Belt) led by 14 points before Marcell Barbee made a toe-tap catch as he fell out of the side of the end zone to make it 24-17 with 7:17 left in regulation. Then, on fourth-and-goal from the 1, Jahmyl Jeter waited patiently for a blocker and then powered over the goal line with 17 seconds left to force overtime.

Jalen Tolbert scored on a 12-yard catch-and-run on the first possession of OT to give the Jaguars a 31-24 lead, but Brock Sturges answered with a short TD run for Texas State (2-3, 1-0) to force a second overtime, which - along with the third - was scoreless.
