A game against a winless team proved to be much tougher than expected. But after a rugged first half, the University of West Florida football team came to life to knock off Mississippi College 28-14 in Gulf South Conference action Friday night at Blue Wahoos Stadium.
The Argonauts (4-1, 2-1 GSC) rallied 14-7 at halftime before using a pair of rushing touchdowns and interception return for a score to seal the deal on their second consecutive win.
This game against the Choctaws (0-6, 0-4) served as a stage in which the Argos’ rushing attack took a big step forward. Former Pace standout Anthony Johnson put UWF in front 7-0 on a 7-yard run and Chris Schwarz scored on a 5-yard run to tie the game at 14-14 early in the third quarter.
Schwarz had the best game of his career in the win, churning out 83 yards on 15 carries, beating his old career-high of 75 yards, which he hit in UWF’s thrilling 23-21 win over Florida Tech a week ago.
