ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Valdosta State picked up 266 yards on the ground as the No. 10 Blazers defeated West Georgia 31-13 in Gulf South Conference football action at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium Saturday afternoon.
The win assured Valdosta State of at least a share of the GSC title, VSU's first since winning the title outright in 2004. After allowing 108 total yards in the first half, the VSU defense stiffened in the second half as it allowed just 31 total yards while scoring a pair of touchdowns through the first 25 minutes of the final two periods.
Head coach David Dean said "We have been in a lot of football games together. We have won a lot of football games together. We won the national championship together and today we clinched ourselves at least a share of the gulf south conference championship."
Valdosta state can win the conference title outright with a win at west Alabama on Thursday night.
