Georgia Southern’s game at Elon to be broadcast live via the Internet

STATESBORO, Ga. – Georgia Southern football will aim for back-to-back wins, traveling to Elon this Saturday (Oct. 1) in a Southern Conference showdown. Game time is scheduled for 2 p.m.

The game will also help launch the SoCon’s premium video streaming website, www.SoCon.TV. Beginning with the GSU-Elon tilt, fans can purchase individual events for viewing at $5.95. Fans can also purchase a SoCon Championship package on a yearly, seasonal or individual event basis. A yearly SoCon Championship pass to SoCon.TV is $44.95, $9.95 for a seasonal subscription and $5.95 for a single event. To view the video streamed events, it requires subscribers to have a high-speed internet connection (DSL, cable or above), Microsoft Windows Media Player 9.0 or higher (downloaded and installed) and a screen resolution of 800x600 or greater, among other requirements.

Coming off a 48-10 win last weekend at home against Chattanooga, the Eagles got back to the .500 mark (2-2 overall, 1-1 SoCon). Jayson Foster and Jermaine Austin each recorded 100 yards rushing games. Foster and Darius Smiley rushed for three touchdowns apiece and the defense intercepted two passes. Southern’s defense also kept the Mocs off the scoreboard during the second half, now having allowed just four TDs during the second half this season.

Austin, thanks to his 26th career 100-yard game, improved to fourth nationally averaging 135.5 yards. Foster dropped a spot to seventh averaging 126.3 yards. They continue to rank 1-2, respectively, in the Southern Conference. Foster also leads the SoCon and ranks 11th nationally averaging 10.5 points per game.

The Eagle offense continues to lead the league and ranks second nationally averaging 387.5 rushing yards per game. Georgia Southern enters the weekend fifth in net punting (39.75), 20th in total offense (435.75) and 37th in scoring offense (31.5 points).

Linebacker John Mohring intercepted one of those passes in the Chattanooga game. He is tied for second in the SoCon, averaging 10.2 tackles per game. His .88 tackles for a loss average puts him in a tie for eighth. Dan Jordan maintained his SoCon punting lead, 42.1 yards per kick.

Led by Reggie Hall’s 180 rushing yards during a 12-9 win over North Carolina A&T last weekend, Elon enters its first conference game at 3-1 overall. Hall moved to 12th nationally averaging 115.8 yards per game. Quarterback Kye Hamilton ranks 52nd in passing efficiency (124.42) and 79th in total offense (147.0). The Phoenix leads the conference in rushing defense (81.0 yards allowed per game, 14th nationally), total defense (274.75, 14th nationally) and kickoff returns (25.0, 15th nationally).

    I agree,

    I love College Hoops. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

    You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite teams and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time the team wins. Also I can sell my team stock when the price goes up.

    check it out if something like this interests you.
