Barker, Troy east past Georgia State 37-20
TROY, Ala. (AP) — Kaleb Barker was 9-of-10 passing for 136 yards and two touchdowns — all in the first half — and Troy cruised by Georgia State 37-20 on Thursday night to extend the nation's third-longest conference winning streak.
Troy (5-1, 3-0 Sun Belt) has won nine straight leagues games, trailing UCF and Oklahoma.
TROY – He was beaten by a step early in a drill during Monday’s spring football practice, but Tyler Murray didn’t panic.
Troy’s “spear” – or hybrid nickel defensive back or outside linebacker – tracked an underthrown deep ball with his eyes, reached up and snagged it like a center fielder with one hand.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound sophomore from Baldwin, Fla., joked when asked about that play after the Trojans’ two-plus hour practice session in shells (helmets, shoulder pads and shorts).
