Jax State 49, Ole Miss 48

In double overtime!

Down 48-41 in double overtime, Jacksonville State found itself in a fourth-and-long situation. After a few seconds of mad scrambling, quarterback Coty Blanchard flung the ball to Kevyn Cooper in the end zone, over 30 yards away. Cooper barely got one foot in bounds for the score.
And then, Jacksonville State coach Jack Crowe elected to go for it all, calling a two-point conversion that paid off. And all of a sudden, Jacksonville State, ranked No. 17 in FCS, has pulled off a major upset of a storied football school, and in dramatic fashion.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the Jacksonville State University Marching Southerners:

“Courage, pride and honor will lead you on to victory!”

Why does this feel like an omen?

    Isn’t it funny how those who “can’t win” seem to find a way? So goes the Chinese proverb: “The wise man said it could not be done, the fool came and did it.”

    They said by golly it couldn’t be done and with a smile he went right to it. And he rolled up his sleeves and tackled the thing that couldn’t be done and by golly he couldn’t do it.
