ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The South Georgia Wildcats made a statement Saturday night at the Albany Civic Center.

South Georgia beat Boise 55-45 handing the 4th ranked Burn its first loss in eight games.

Darnell Kennedy led the Wildcats throwing for six touchdowns and rushing one in from 31 yards out as well.

The Wildcats improve to 10-5 on the season and will conclude the regular season next week at Tennessee Valley.

"I think we played a complete game the defense got the stops when we needed them. The offense was consistent we got quick strikes and we had a few drives where we worked the ball a little bit" said head coach Rodney Blackshear.

"To win this big at this time of the year I think is real big for us. Especially the way we had to do it. How hard it was" said QB Darnell Kennedy.

"Coach Blackshear always challenges us always try to start fast. He said the offense doesn't just have to start fast but the defense could do the same thing. So that's one thing we try to do once the game gets going" said DB Quentin Burrell

South Georgia still has a chance to host a playoff game but will need Kentucky to lose next week to do so.

With just one game left in the regular season South Georgia can still earn a home playoff game. If Kentucky loses to Florida and the Wildcats win at Tennessee Valley next week South Georgia would host a playoff game.
