The University of North Alabama’s defense gave a valiant effort but the Lions offense couldn’t put any points on the board as UNA was shutout at home by Valdosta State in a key Gulf South Conference battle 5-0.

UNA’s 101 total yards was the lowest offensive output in school history, and the Lions recovered a fumble in their own end zone to give Valdosta State a safety, which was the only score of the game until the fourth quarter.

Valdosta State’s average field position in the first half was its own 49, and the Blazers started three drives in UNA territory. The UNA defense did not allow a score, however, stopping the Blazers twice on fourth down and forcing one turnover. UNA averaged starting field position in the first half was its own 15 yard line and the Lions finished the half with just 24 yards of offense on 26 plays.

In the second half UNA had just five offensive possessions and the last two ended in interceptions in Valdosta State territory.
