Edward Waters 62, Georgia State 0: Three Tiger quarterbacks passed for touchdowns, as the host team cruised to a victory over a winless club team in front of a homecoming crowd of 6,577 at Raines High School. Georgia State quarterback Steve Williams, meanwhile, failed to complete a pass in nine attempts and was sacked eight times. The Panthers finished with no passing yards and 53 rushing yards. EWC (7-2) gained 527 yards of total offense and won convincingly despite coach Lamonte Massie pulling many of his starters at halftime. With the victory, the Tigers matched their win total of last season and can surpass it with two games remaining. EWC quarterback Dexter Davis, who was among the seniors honored before the game, completed 5-of-7 passes for 120 yards and one touchdown in only one half of work. Junior Johnson Sessions returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown with 1:15 remaining in the first half, extending EWC's lead to 41-0.

Troy (5-4) stopped the Florida Atlantic running game, holding the Owls to minus 12 yards rushing and intercepting two passes.
