BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -- The Ohio Valley Conference named Jacksonville State quarterback Max Shortell as its newcomer of the week.

In his Gamecock debut, Shortell led the Gamecocks to a 24-22 win at Alabama State, where finished 13-of-23 passing for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns and posted a 155.41 passing efficiency rating.

Shortell entered the game trailing 6-0 in the second quarter and led JSU to all four scoring drives in the third quarter. He orchestrated scoring drives of 68 and 75 yards to give JSU a 14-9 lead midway through the third quarter.
