October 15, 2005

LIVINGSTON, Ala. - Barrett Wilkes passed for 338 yards and three touchdowns to lead Valdosta State to a 31 to 19 victory over West Alabama today.

Donnie Daniels scored the final touchdown on an eleven-yard fumble recovery for the Blazers (7-1, 5-1 Gulf South Conference) with 10:42 left after West Alabama had cut it to 24 to 19 with two third quarter T-Ds.

The Tigers (2-6, 0-6) scored on a 79-yard touchdown pass from James Reiter to Chris Coach midway through the third and added Eric McCants' one-yard T-D run two minutes later.

Wilkes completed 31 of 40 passes with an interception.

Each of his T-D passes came in the first half as Valdosta State built a 24 to 6 lead.

The Blazers next game will be Thursday night at 8 p.m. as they host North Alabama.
