JACKSONVILLE, Ala. -- Maikhail Miller's touchdown in overtime and successful two-point conversion pass sealed a 35-34 victory for Murray State against Jacksonville State Saturday.

With four seconds left in the fourth quarter, Griffin Thomas scored a 25-yard field goal for Jacksonville State (4-1, 0-1) to send the game into overtime at 27-27.
