JACKSONVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Roc Thomas ran for two touchdowns and Bryant Horn fired an 80-yard bomb to Trae Barry as Jacksonville State thumped Liberty 31-10 in a non-conference game Saturday night.

The victory was Jacksonville State’s third straight over the Flames, including a 48-19 thrashing last year in Lynchburg.

Liberty (3-1) got on the board first after a 12-play drive stalled at the Jacksonville State 11. Alex Probert kicked a 28-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead.

After trading punts, Horn unleashed the long TD pass to Barry to start a run of 24-straight points by the Gamecocks (2-1).

Thomas, who had 18 carries for 87 yards, got the first of his two touchdowns early in the third quarter, scoring from 11-yards out. Kendrick Doss added a 15-yard run for a touchdown to complete the scoring run.

Stephen Buckshot Calvert got Liberty back on the board with a 65-yard scoring pass to B.J. Farrow.
