The once troubled and perilous LSU Tiger has found a home at Jacksonville State University. After sitting out the first game of the season, Perriloux has led the Gamecocks to 4 wins in their last 5 games. To be honest, JSU could easily be the Appalachian State of 2009. It was very late in Tallahassee, as the Gamecocks clinged to a 9-7 lead over FSU on September 12. But, Bowden's squad put up 12 points in the final minutes of that contest, to squeak out a hard fought 19-9 victory.
Since then, Ryan Perriloux has led JSU to a rampage through FCS opponents. He has thrown for 1,284 yards including 15 TDs with just 1 int on the year. The Former LSU QB has shown great precision, by completing 61.2% of his passes. During the same span, Jacksonville State has outscored opponents 198-37 in FCS football. The Gamecocks have a bye this Saturday. Then, they face the Eastern Illinois Panthers for Homecoming on October 24.
To see highlights of Perriloux at JSU, click on the title of this post. About halfway through the video, there's a great shot of him, as he de-helmitizes a Florida State Seminole. The dude didn't go down, but it ain't very often you see a QB blast somebody like that.
