Jones shines as FAU beats USF 28-10

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

Cory Henry scored on an early 10-yard fumble return and Jaquez Johnson led two long touchdown drives to help Florida Atlantic beat struggling South Florida 28-10 on Saturday night.
    
The Owls (1-2) sputtered offensively in beginning the season with lopsided losses to Miami and East Carolina, however Jones shrugged off a first-quarter interception to get them into the end zone on marches of 80 and 93 yards to stop a four-game losing streak and drop USF to 0-3 under first-year coach Willie Taggart.
    
Jones scored on a 4-yard TD run that gave FAU a 14-10 lead just before halftime. Jonathan Wallace added a 1-yard scoring run in the third quarter, and D'Joun Smith finished the rout by returning an interception 75 yards for the fifth defensive TD scored against South Florida in three games.
