No. 23 Troy rallies past No. 22 UTSA 18-12 in Cure Bowl

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Gunnar Watson's 12-yard scoring pass to RaJae' Johnson in the third period put No. 23 Troy ahead to stay, and the Trojans forced five turnovers in an 18-12 come-from-behind win over No. 22 UTSA in the Duluth Trading Cure Bowl on Friday.

Troy (12-2), the Sun Belt Conference champion, closed out the season with 11 straight victories and set a school record for wins in a season.

"Twelve-2, 11 straight wins, conference champs, first time we'll ever be ranked to end a season," Troy coach Jon Sumrall said. "This team has done some things that have never been done. We're going to take a few days and appreciate it. Then we're going to get ready for 2023."
