Ellison directs Georgia Southern to upset over Troy 28-24

STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) Kevin Ellison threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more and Georgia Southern beat Troy 28-24 on Saturday.

Troy (9-3, 6-2) needed a victory to tie for what would have been their sixth Sun Belt championship but instead the Eagles (5-7, 4-4) snapped a four-game losing streak and beat the Trojans for the fourth straight time.

The Eagles took a 28-24 lead with 9:46 left in the fourth quarter when Ellison connected with BJ Johnson on a 64-yard pass. Johnson caught the ball at the Troy 42, broke a tackle and raced to the end zone.
