  Gunnar Watson threw for 297 yards and three touchdowns while wearing thick pads to protect fractured ribs and Troy blanked South Alabama 29-0 on Saturday to win the "Battle of the Belt" for an unprecedented third straight time. Watson threw all three touchdowns in the second quarter - finding Khalil McClain from 15, Kaylon Geiger from 15 and Tray Eafford from 21. Evan Legassey added a 44-yard field goal eight seconds before the half to end the scoring for Troy (5-5, 3-3 Sun Belt Conference).

Neither team had won three straight "Battles for the Belt" since the challenge series began nine years ago. Troy's game-opening drive ended with an interception when Tez Johnson's pass on a reverse was picked off by Dewayne Betts. The Trojan defense forced a three-and-out and Legassey put points on the board with a 22-yard field goal. South Alabama (4-7, 3-5) was held to 239 yards of offense, 17 first downs and never got into the red zone. Desmond Trotter passed for 144 yards and the Jaguars gained just 57 on the ground. Trotter threw an interception and lost a fumble after being sacked. Each led to a Troy touchdown. - Troy/AP College Football

  Evan Legassey kicked a 47-yard field goal as time expired to give Troy a 31-29 victory over Eastern Kentucky on Saturday. Parker McKinney threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Keyion Dixon, capping a 10-play, 80-yard drive that gave Eastern Kentucky (1-4) the lead with 21 seconds to play. Reggie Todd returned the ensuing kickoff 35 yards before Legassey kicked the game-winner three plays later. Gunnar Watson was 26-of-38 passing for 333 yards and threw three touchdown passes to lead Troy (3-1). Kimani Vidal had 143 yards rushing and a 1-yard touchdown run, and is the first true freshman in the program to record back-to-back 100-yard rushing games. McKinney was 30-of-47 passing for 370 yards and threw a pair of touchdown passes to Dixon, including a school-record 90-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Attendance was 10,500 with social distancing measures in place at 30,000-seat Veterans Memorial Stadium. - Troy/AP College Football

  Confidence and poise were two popular words used on Saturday while describing Watson's performance. "I thought he was really poised back there," said head coach Chip Lindsey. "He really made good decisions and he threw the ball with good trajectory. I thought he showed a lot of poise and confidence. I thought the longer the game went he got more confident." In Troy's loss to BYU earlier this month pressure got to Watson. Watson was sacked a total of four times and hurried three times. Against Texas State Watson had more time to move around the pocket and was not sacked. Because of that Watson believes he was more comfortable. "The more I play the more comfortable I get," Watson said. "I thought our offensive line did a heck of a job of protecting. They brought a little pressure, but I felt like I had plenty of time today to sit back there and go through my progressions."

Watson had more time preparing for this game due to the postponement of Troy's game against South Alabama. He made good use of the extra time. "It helped me prepare a lot," Watson said. "I got in the film room a lot more last week and I think everybody was ready." Despite the strong performance, Watson has already turned the page and is looking forward to his next contest against Eastern Kentucky. "It was big, but we have to put that one to bed and get on to the next one," Watson said. "It's get to get a win, but I'm looking forward to the next one and getting better this week during practice." - Troy Messenger

  Gunnar Watson threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns and Troy opened its season with a 47-14 victory over Middle Tennessee State on Saturday. Watson threw both of his touchdown passes to Khalil McClain in the first half, including a 5-yarder with three seconds left before the break to lead 26-7. Three Trojans running backs scored on short runs with Troy rushing for 240 yards. Troy outgained MTSU 496-241. Troy's Will Choloh had a sack for a safety and Terence Dunlap two of the Trojans' three interceptions. MTSU (0-2) limited fan capacity to 7,000 in their 30,788-seat stadium with face coverings required. Troy will host MTSU in a second regular-season meeting on Nov. 21. A second game was slated after Troy's four originally scheduled nonleague games were canceled. It's the third time since 1999 that two Division I teams will play in the same regular season. - Troy Football

  Troy went through its second scrimmage of the fall Saturday morning at Veterans Memorial Stadium exactly two weeks out from its season opener against Louisiana-Monroe. The Trojans ran around 125 plays on the day, and head coach Chip Lindsey named sophomore Gunnar Watson the starting quarterback following the scrimmage. "Throughout the whole camp and preseason practice (Gunnar) has been the most consistent quarterback," Lindsey said following the scrimmage. "Gunnar has to do a good job to keep that spot but we will go with him in game one as our starter." Watson took all of the snaps with the No. 1 offense Saturday and led several scoring drives including a textbook back shoulder touchdown pass to Kaylon Geiger. "I'm excited and ready to play some ball," Watson said. "(Being named the starter) gives you a little more confidence and gets you going to lead the team." - Montgomery Advertiser
