  Jacksonville State earned $400,000 for a trip to Tallahassee. It was a night and victory the Gamecocks will savor for a lifetime. Zerrick Cooper connected with Damond Philyaw-Johnson on a 59-yard touchdown as time expired and Jacksonville State upset Florida State 20-17 on Saturday night. "You've got to play at a certain level execution-wise in these type games and we did that tonight," Jacksonville State coach John Grass said. "(Damond) beat his man, Zerrick made a perfect throw, he made a great cut down there and Ahmad (Edwards) made a big block and got him in the end zone." A year ago, Jacksonville State had a 14-0 lead after a quarter against Florida State.

On Saturday, the Gamecocks (1-1) needed touchdowns on their final two drives but enjoyed late magic as they celebrated by planting a flag at midfield on the Seminoles' logo. Cooper completed 17 of 38 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns. The senior surpassed Eli Jenkins (7,652 yards from 2013-16) as JSU's all-time passing leader. He now has 7,819 passing yards for his career. The Seminoles (0-2) were sluggish from the start as they played six days after an overtime loss to No. 9 Notre Dame. Florida State lost for the first time in 27 matchups against FCS teams. - Jacksonville State/AP College Football

  The Denver Broncos did not sign former Auburn/Jacksonville State tight end Landon Rice, though they did express interest in him as a free agent, according to the Denver Post. Rice's signing with the Broncos was originally announced by Jacksonville State's official social media accounts. Rice was not selected in the 2021 NFL Draft but Jacksonville State announced on Twitter and Instagram that he had signed with the Broncos. A former four-star tight end, Rice originally signed with Auburn as part of its 2016 recruiting class. He was dismissed from the team on Sept. 10, 2016 after being accused of rape for an incident that occurred in April 2016. A subsequent Title IX investigation found Rice was "responsible" for sexual assault, and his appeal of the ruling was denied. As part of his initial punishment, Rice was banned from Auburn's campus for eight years -- until the fall of 2024 -- and was not permitted to attend any of the university's events during that time. - Birmingham News
