The Jags were back on the practice field Tuesday for the first time after their historic win against Mississippi State.

"Obviously when you win a game like that it will bring some confidence," Coach Joey Jones said. "But the reality is we have to come out here and work our tails off every day to get better."

Last weekend’s win against Mississippi State is being called the biggest upset in college football in 5 years.

The Jags beat the Bulldogs 21-20 after the Bulldogs missed a last minute field goal.

Jones says it's good news, but the celebration is over. Next up is Georgia Southern.

Coach Jones said, "They're a very tough opponent, we know that and they really put it on us last year so our guys got a little something to prove here."

That's a shared feeling throughout the team. Senior linebacker Roman Buchanan says last week's win is in the past.

"I was excited about it but honestly I moved on from it," he said. "That was week one this is week two."

Buchanan says the win put a big target on their backs and they're focused now more than ever.

"I'm just ready to work and excited about this week because we know that the ball is in our court and it's up to us what we do with it and how we execute," he said.
