Moses Has Record Setting Performance in Setback
Oct. 20, 2007
SAN MARCOS, Texas - Freshman quarterback Jeremy Moses completed 41-of-59 passes for 508 yards and three touchdowns, but it wasn't enough to stop Texas State Saturday night at Bobcat Stadium. Texas State (2-5/1-2 SLC) recorded a 52-29 victory over SFA, who fell to 0-7 overall and 0-3 in Southland Conference play.
Moses set new single-game school records for pass completions and pass attempts, and recorded the fourth-best single-game mark in pass yards, but it was the offensive miscues that slowed the Lumberjacks. SFA was penalized 14 times for 125 yards and turned the ball over three times.
The Bobcats took the SFA miscues and turned it into a 31-7 lead heading into the locker room, but the Lumberjacks didn't go quietly into the night. Moses led the Lumberjacks to three second half touchdowns. He hooked up with freshman Marcus Taylor, who made a great effort to catch the ball, and then turned it up field for a 56-yard touchdown reception.
Moses also hooked up with sophomore Aaron Rhea for a 56-yard, and 52-yard scoring strike. Rhea finished the game with six catches for 176 yards and two scores, while Taylor hauled in eight passes for 115 yards. Rhea's 176 receiving yards marked the ninth-best single-game mark in school history.
Despite the `Jacks' valiant effort in the second half, Texas State was able to match the SFA offensive output. The Bobcats finished the game with 638 total yards of offensive, including 447 yards on the ground.
The Lumberjacks will look to rebound next week when they return home to host Sam Houston State for Homecoming. The game against the Bearkats is slated to begin at 2 p.m. from Homer Bryce Stadium.
