As you’ve probably heard, this game is over.
And for the Southern football team, it is a demoralizing defeat.
Southern managed to blow a 16-point second-half lead against Florida A&M, which rallied for three unanswered touchdowns and snuffed out a late comeback attempt to prevail 38-33 at the Georgia Dome in the Atlanta Football Classic.
For the Jaguars, this was an absolute crushing loss. Southern (1-3) has blown fourth-quarter leads in back-to-back games against bitter rivals Jackson State and FAMU.
Saturday, the SU offense managed only 2 yards in the third quarter; offensive linemen Chris Browne and Zach Brown left the game with injuries in the second half; and the defense couldn’t get off the field when it absolutely needed to.
We’ll be back Sunday with a more detailed breakdown of the game.
Until then, feel free to mope.
