Georgia Southern 21, Appalachian St. 14, OT

Associated Press

STATESBORO, Ga. -- Robert Brown scored on a 4-yard run to give Georgia Southern a 21-14 overtime win Saturday over Appalachian State, snapping the Mountaineers' 26-game winning streak in Southern Conference play.

The loss was Appalachian State's first in a conference game since losing to Georgia Southern, 38-35, on Oct. 20, 2007.

The Eagles (5-4, 3-3) overcame an early 14-0 deficit, but scored the game's final 21 points to pull off the upset. The Mountaineers (8-1, 6-1) had three turnovers, all in the red zone, including a fumble by quarterback DeAndre Presley on the final play of the game.

Shaw, hobbled by a hip injury, rushed for 86 yards and a 16-yard run to convert a third down in overtime before Brown scored the game-deciding touchdown for Georgia Southern.

On the next possession, Presley fumbled and Josh Rowe recovered the loose ball to seal the win for Georgia Southern.
