Players with Alabama ties played a major factor in a big upset on Saturday as Arkansas State knocked off Kansas State.

Former Crimson Tide quarterback Layne Hatcher and former Alabama tight end Giles Amos each contributed to the upset 35-31 win. Arkansas State scored 21 unanswered points after it trailed 21-7 midway through the second quarter.

Hatcher, who transferred to Arkansas State last year, was 6 of 8 passing for 61 yards with two touchdowns while he split time with starting quarterback Logan Bonner. The second touchdown pass proved to be the game-winner, a 17-yard scoring pass with 38 seconds left.

Amos added two catches for 17 yards and a touchdown, which came from Hatcher with 2:28 left in the third quarter.

The Red Wolves gained 489 total yards after they had 424 yards in a 37-24 loss to Memphis last week.

The Red Wolves beat a Power 5 program for the second time since moving up to FBS status in 1992. Their previous win came over Texas A&M, 18-14, in 2008.
