SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Freshman quarterback Josh McGregor led Jacksonville on three consecutive scoring drives to lead the Dolphins to a 20-7 victory over Savannah State on Saturday.
McGregor, who replaced starter Erik Stepelton in the third quarter, was 9-for-14 for 159 yards and scored on a 13-yard run.
Savannah State fell to 0-1.
Both teams missed field goals in the first half, but the Dolphins got the scoring started on Josh Hostetler's 29-yard field goal on the opening drive of the third quarter.
McGregor's 13-yard run put the Dolphins ahead 10-0 before Dawson's touchdown run gave them a 17-0 advantage.
Savannah State's Kurvin Curry connected with Tyron Kirkland on a 32-yard touchdown pass to cut the lead to 17-7, but Hostetler kicked a 42-yard field goal to give the Dolphins a 20-7 advantage with 3:55 remaining.
