  South Alabama didn't force a turnover and had only one sack, so "havoc" plays are still somewhat lacking. However, when the game was on the line, the Jaguars made some big stops. Particularly important were linebacker Riley Cole snagging Texas State quarterback Brady McBride for a 3-yard loss on fourth-and-2 at the South Alabama 40 with the score tied 17-17 late in the third quarter, and cornerback Ryan Melton stringing out a wide running play on third-and-1 and forcing a punt with the Jaguars up seven with a little more than five minutes left in the game. Cole was particularly brilliant, piling up a career-high 15 tackles from his inside linebacker spot. - Birmingham News
