MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The South Alabama Jaguars were in Michigan this weekend playing the Central Michigan Chippewas.

Here’s how the game played out:

In the first quarter, Carter Bradley in the shot gun, with pressure coming, makes a deep throw to the endzone. It’s caught for a Jags touchdown to DJ Thomas-Banks.

Later in the opening quarter comes a Central Michigan punt return, but the ball is taken away by South Alabama’s trey kiser. A special teams mistake gets the ball back to the jags.

In the second quarter, Bradley is looking for a man in the endzone when he finds Jaylen Wayne in the corner for another Jag touchdown. South is up 27-7.

Skipping ahead to the fourth quarter, with Bradley in the shotgun, he hands it off to La’Damian Webb, who finds a gap for a touchdown. That was the nail in the coffin for Central Michigan.

The final score: the Jags 38, the Chippewas 24.

Jags Head Coach Kane Wommack was proud of how his guys competed in the matchup.

“We just held momentum and we played really hard,” Wommack said. “You know, that was ... a really tough, you know what I mean, dominating performance against a very good football team.”

South Alabama is back next Saturday, as they face a tough road test at UCLA. Kickoff set for 1 p.m..
