“Feels good. Tough game; a difficult team to break down but that was the game plan,” Troy Coach Stuart Gore said. “We adjusted to a few things at halftime. Wells scored an absolute banger. What happens is the goal comes in the second half and they have to come out and then we just sit back. We do exercises called second-phase ball.”

Troy will look to keep the winning streak going at home on Sunday, Sept. 3, at 6 p.m. against Alabama State.
