Valdosta - 4th ranked Valdosta State's offense once again awakes in the second half and the Blazers celebrate homecoming with a 31-3 win over Ouachita Baptist Saturday afternoon at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium.
The Blazers started the second half with Michael Terry scoring on a long touchdown run to start the third quarter.
Later in the third, Willie Copeland threw a short pass to Cedric Jones who ran it in for what goes on the books as 21-yard touchdown pass for the Blazers to make it 24-3.
Terry capped off the scoring with another long touchdown run early in the fourth quarter.
The senior from Americus finished with 181 yards rushing.
The most by a Blazer since Aaron Jenkins ran for 204 yards in 2002
Mike Terry said "I just had to because last week my teammates gave me a hard time about Mike you can always break it long but you can never score. So, I just had to bring the old high school Mike Terry back."
The first half saw the Valdosta State offense fumble the football twice.
The first fumble led to Ouachita Baptist's field goal.
The Blazers added a field goal and then took the lead on a 61 yard punt return by Roger King for the first VSU touchdown of the game.
David Dean said "Fortunately for us, our defense played a great game. They started strong and they finished strong. We were able to come out in the second half and make some plays running the ball."
Valdosta State is 4-0 and the road next Saturday at Southern Arkansas.
