Minter leads South Alabama past Coastal Carolina 31-28

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) Tra Minter ran for a career-high 203 yards and Cole Garvin and Evan Orth each threw a long touchdown pass to Jamarius Way to help South Alabama hold off Coastal Carolina 31-28 on Friday.

Minter, a junior who had never had a 100-yard rushing game, had 24 carries and added two catches for 49 yards for the Jaguars (3-9, 2-6 Sun Belt Conference), who snapped a four-game skid.

South Alabama took a 3-0 lead on Gavin Patterson's 32-yard field goal on its first possession and stretched the advantage to 10-0 on Garvin's 45-yard hookup with Way following a lost fumble by Coastal Carolina. The Jaguars upped their lead to 17-0 when backup quarterback Orth hit Way for a 73-yard scoring strike 1:32 into the second quarter.
