Werts was 11-of-16 passing for 128 yards with no interceptions and finished with 13 carries for 76 yards. On the fifth play from scrimmage, Werts hit Malik Murray for a 47-yard touchdown catch-and-run, then added TD passes of 8 and 10 yards to Beau Johnson that gave Georgia Southern (3-1) a 21-0 lead with 9:12 left in the first half. UMass (0-1) was limited to 191 total yards, converted just 2-of-13 third downs with four three-and-outs, and never moved past the Georgia Southern 21-yard line.

UMass announced the cancellation of its 2020 football season on Aug. 11 due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic but later reversed course and on Sept. 21 the school said it would play a limited number of games to be announced as they are scheduled and Saturday's contest against Georgia Southern is the only one currently on the slate for the Minutemen. Georgia Southern's 25,000-seat Allen E. Paulson Stadium was limited to a capacity of 6,200 due to concerns related to pandemic. - Georgia Southern/AP College Football

  Georgia Southern has hired Chris Davis as its new deputy director of athletics, a GS spokesperson confirmed to the Savannah Morning News on Sunday morning, June 14. Davis comes to GS after spending the last 11 years at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama, most recently serving as the Vice President and General Manager of Auburn Sports Properties. In this role, Davis worked to grow corporate partnership revenue. "My family and I love living in Auburn and being a member of the Auburn family," Davis said in a tweet Saturday night. "The loveliest Village has given us tons of love, smiles, care and in some tough times a bunch of support." The University of Miami graduate will replace Lisa Sweany, who held the deputy AD role since 2017 following NCAA Division I Georgia Southern's merger with Armstrong State in Savannah. Sweany was athletic director for the Division II Pirates program for six years. - Savannah Morning News

  Shai Werts said the last 10 days have been the most trying of his entire life. Given what he's gone through prior, that's saying something. "It's been difficult," Werts said after a team scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 10, at Paulson Stadium in discussing his July 31 arrest on charges of misdemeanor possession of cocaine and speeding in Saluda County, South Carolina. "I stayed down and I knew that the truth was eventually going to come out. Just didn't know how long it would take. It's definitely been hard to deal with."

The truth - the substance found on the hood of Werts' car that night in Saluda County which tested positive for cocaine on the scene - was actually not cocaine. In fact, it wasn't a controlled substance of any kind, according to the Aug. 8 test results from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED). "SLED received the substance and completed the drug analysis," read the official report from The Eleventh Circuit Solicitor's Office. "The forensic scientist determined that no controlled substance was detected." - Savannah Morning News

  Shai Werts, the starting quarterback for LSU's season opening opponent Georgia Southern, is back with the team after being suspended earlier in the week, according to Georgia TV station's report. WSAV-TV says Werts returned to practice on Saturday after submitting to, and passing, a drug test, but school officials say the two-year starter is still suspended for the opener against the Tigers until his case plays out, according to the Georgia Southern Student-Athlete Code of Conduct. Werts could possibly play if his misdemeanor charges are dropped, at which point it is up to the school's athletic director and school staff to determine disciplinary action. Werts was indefinitely suspended after being arrested and charged with speeding and misdemeanor possession of cocaine during a traffic stop in Saluda, South Carolina on Wednesday night. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  Georgia Southern indefinitely suspended quarterback Shai Werts on Friday after it was discovered the two-year starter was arrested for cocaine possession. The Eagles open their season Aug. 31 at LSU. On Wednesday, Werts was pulled over by police in South Carolina for speeding when they noticed a white substance on his car, according to the police report. Werts reportedly told police the substance was bird poop but later tested positive for cocaine, according to The George-Anne, Georgia Southern's student newspaper.

Werts is the Eagles' expected starter heading into the season. He was named to the All-Sun Belt Conference Second Team in 2018, when he started in all 13 games for Georgia Southern, which went 10-3 with a 23-21 win over Eastern Michigan in the Camellia Bowl. Werts rushed for 908 yards and 15 touchdowns in Georgia Southern's option offense, and he passed for 987 yards and 10 touchdowns with no interceptions. Head coach Chad Lunsford also announced Friday defensive end Quan Griffin was suspended from a separate arrest. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  A shock was delivered to Georgia Southern fans just minutes before the team officially opened fall football camp on Friday as head coach Chad Lunsford announced the arrests and subsequent suspensions of two Eagle players - most notably starting quarterback Shai Werts. "Shai was arrested Wednesday in Saluda, South Carolina," Lunsford said. "It is our understanding that he was charged with speeding and misdemeanor possession of cocaine after some residue was found on the hood of the car."

Werts came to Georgia Southern in 2016 and sat out his first season before winning the starting quarterback job as a redshirt freshman ahead of the 2017 season opener. He has started all but one game - missed due to injury in 2017 - since then and has become the leader of the Eagle offense. - Statesboro Herald
