MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - This is nothing new to Ryan Perrilloux. Jacksonville State's high-profile quarterback has played in big games and big stadiums, and he's even done it in the same big city. The LSU transfer leads the Football Championship Subdivision team into Atlanta to face Georgia Tech on Thursday night.
It's a fitting debut for Perrilloux, who is far more used to the limelight than most of his teammates. His last significant action with the defending national champions came when he was named MVP of the Southeastern Conference championship game last season in the same city.
Largely due to Perrilloux's presence, the Gamecocks were picked to win the Ohio Valley Conference.
