Elijah Guyton converted the point-after attempt after Bry Webb’s seven-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter to give the Tigers the 10-3 lead.

Later on UWA’s opening drive of the third quarter, he added some insurance with a 30-yard field goal.

West Alabama will take a well-deserved bye week this weekend and return to the gridiron on the road Oct. 28 against Chowan. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET / noon CT from Murfreesboro, North Carolina.
