The South Alabama Jaguars will open up their season this weekend against the Kent State Golden Flashes, who lost their first game of the season last week.
South Alabama finished their 2013 season right in the middle of the Sun Belt standings by going 4-3 in the conference and 6-6 overall. They were able to win two of their first three games last year, but their chances of winning the conference title went away when they lost five of their next six games.
Senior quarterback Brandon Bridge will be the Jaguars' starter for the first time in his career this year after throwing for 398 yards and one touchdown in 2013. Senior running back Jay Jones, who rushed for 737 yards and five touchdowns last season, is expected to carry more of the load for South Alabama this year.
Kent State weren't expected to beat Ohio in their opening game, so they may feel pretty good about themselves despite losing 17-14. Ohio made a field as time expired in the game to win it. The most impressive stat for Kent State was that they didn't turn the ball over and forced Ohio into coughing it up four times.
Quarterback Colin Reardon was solid for the Golden Flashes in the losing effort by throwing for 264 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Ernest Calhoun caught 11 passes for 62 yards, while Chris Humphrey had six catches for 91 yards and one touchdown.
