South Alabama gets first win in new stadium, beats Texas St.


MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Desmond Trotter tossed an 8-yard touchdown pass to Kawaan Baker with about seven minutes to play, helping South Alabama pull away in its Sun Belt Conference opener with a 30-20 victory over Texas State.  It was the Jaguars’ first win at the new 24,450-seat Hancock Whitney Stadium, which was limited to 25 percent capacity. Trotter’s TD pass gave the Jaguars a 27-20 lead. South Alabama forced a three-and-out on the Bobcats’ ensuing series, and Diego Guajardo’s 44-yard field goal with 1:09 remaining capped a 10-play, 4-minute drive. Brady McBride was 28 of 40 for 260 yards passing for Texas State.
