No. 9 Valdosta State (3-1) fell to No. 8 North Alabama (4-0) at home 34-12.
The North Alabama defense was stout holding the Blazer offense under 300 total yards.
VSU quarterback E.J. Hilliard struggled to get the passing game going. He completed 12 of 29 for only 89 yards in his lowest performance of the season.
Valdosta State looks to turn things around next week in Carrollton when they play West Georgia.
