The Sports Inquirer attended the presser of Georgia State football quarterback Dan Ellington (right) and wide receiver Cornelius McCoy (left) following the team’s 48-42 home win over Furman on Sept. 7. Ellington passed for a school-record five touchdowns going 29-of-37 for 362 yards in the air and rushed 15 times for 86 yards. His 448 total yards of offense is the third-most in a single-game in program history. McCoy had 10 catches for for a team-high 143 yards.

Topics included the Panthers starting the season 2-0, rebounding from a slow offensive start against Furman after trailing 20-3 in the first half, moving past the season opening win at Tennessee and areas of improvement for the offense.
