Will Scott kicked a 30-yard field goal to give Troy a 34-31 season-opening win over UAB on Saturday.

The Trojans rallied from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit, tying it on a 1-yard run by quarterback Deon Anthony with 3:17 remaining.

UAB had the first overtime possession and botched the snap on a 37-yard field goal attempt. On Troy's first overtime play, Anthony had a 16-yard run. Two plays later, Scott won it.

Troy quarterback Corey Robinson finished 30 for 32 passing for 319 yards and a touchdown. He set a Sun Belt Conference record for completion percentage and tied a 45-year-old school record with 20 consecutive completions.

UAB's Austin Brown passed for 301 yards and three touchdowns, including a 62-yarder to Jamarcus Nelson in the third quarter that gave the Blazers a 31-17 lead.

Nelson totaled 367 all-purpose yards to set a UAB school record and scored on a school-record 97-yard kickoff return.
