STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) Shai Werts accounted for three touchdowns as Georgia Southern jumped out to an early lead and coasted to a 48-13 Sun Belt Conference victory over South Alabama on Saturday afternoon.
Werts rushed for 85 yards with two scores and threw for 99 yards and another TD as Georgia Southern (4-1, 2-0) continued to roll with its only loss being to Clemson, which was ranked No. 2 in the nation at the time.
Werts opened the scoring with a 1-yard plunge in the first after Monquavion Brinson returned an interception 30 yards to USA's 5. Two plays later Werts scored. He then hit a wide-open Darion Anderson in stride for a 59-yard scoring strike to go ahead 14-0 early in the second quarter. Georgia Southern pushed that to a 27-6 lead going into the fourth. Werts tacked on another score when he ran it in from the 4 early in the final quarter.
Monteo Garrett finished with a career-high 91 yards rushing on 11 carries for the Eagles.
Evan Orth led South Alabama (1-5, 1-2), throwing for 197 yards.
