November 5, 2005

VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Beron Ford returned an interception 69 yards for a touchdown with about three minutes left to lead West Georgia to a 29 to 15 upset win over second-ranked Valdosta State today.

Michael Green kicked three field goals for the Blazers, who won the Division II national championship last year.

Valdosta State fell to 9-2 overall while West Georgia moved to 7-4.

The Blazers had beaten the Braves five years in a row.

With Valdosta State's loss, Central Arkansas clinched the Gulf South Conference championship.
