Georgia State loses in triple overtime

Joshua Rowland kicked a 35-yard field goal and Texas State clipped Georgia State 37-34 in triple overtime to open Sun Belt Conference play Saturday night in San Marcos, Texas.

Rowland had already kicked field goals of 45 and 34 yards in regulation before his game-winner sent the Bobcats (1-3, 1-0 Sun Belt) dancing off the field in the third overtime.

Georgia State's Brandon Wright knocked in a 20-yard field goal with no time left in regulation to knot the score 27-27 and force OT. Dan Ellington of the Panthers connected with Sam Pinckney for a 13-yard score to open overtime.

Texas State answered when Gresch Jenson ran in from the 1 on a keeper.

Each team missed a field goal in the second overtime.

Jensen completed 16 of 24 passes for Texas State.

Georgia State is 2-2, 0-1 in the Sun Belt.
