The Trojans (4-3, 3-2 Sun Belt) drove 69 yards for the game-winning kick after starting at their 6-yard line. Troy had trailed 37-21 in the third quarter after Justin Haley’s 62-yard fumble return for a touchdown.
Deon Anthony, starting in place of injured quarterback Corey Robinson, threw three touchdown passes—the last an 11-yarder to Eric Thomas in the third quarter. Anthony scored his second rushing touchdown, a 13-yarder, in the fourth quarter.
Anthony, whose 115 rushing yards are the most by a Troy quarterback since 1989, completed 29 of 41 for 245 yards in Robinson’s stead. Troy’s all-time leading passer, who suffered a concussion last week, had started 31 straight games.
Jake Medlock completed 17 of 27 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns for FIU (1-7, 0-4).
