Ellison directs Georgia Southern to upset over Troy 28-24

STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) Kevin Ellison threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more and Georgia Southern beat Troy 28-24 on Saturday.

Troy (9-3, 6-2) needed a victory to tie for what would have been their sixth Sun Belt championship but instead the Eagles (5-7, 4-4) snapped a four-game losing streak and beat the Trojans for the fourth straight time.

The Eagles took a 28-24 lead with 9:46 left in the fourth quarter when Ellison connected with BJ Johnson on a 64-yard pass. Johnson caught the ball at the Troy 42, broke a tackle and raced to the end zone.

After an exchange of punts, Troy drove from its own 14 and had a third-and-8 from the Eagles 9 with no timeouts. Josh Anderson was tackled in bounds after no gain on a reception and the Trojans scrambled to get off a final snap but Brandon Silvers' pass was incomplete.

Ellison finished with 115 yards rushing and 127 passing with both of his TD throws going to Johnson, who had 129 yards receiving.

Jordan Chunn scored on a pair of runs to tie the Troy career record with 34 rushing touchdowns.
