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.

Lions shutout Lambuth

North Alabama coach Terry Bowden warned his team throughout the week that it could not afford to take Lambuth lightly. The Lions apparently got the message. No. 3 UNA took control with a pair of early turnovers and never let the Eagles back in the game in cruising to a 31-0 victory on Saturday. UNA (4-0) got three turnovers from its defense and held the Eagles (2-2) to just 122 total yards in posting the shutout.
