ORLANDO, Fla. — A late rally fell short and Georgia State fell to San Jose State 27-16 in the inaugural AutoNation Cure Bowl on Saturday night.

In just their sixth year of existence, the Panthers were making their first bowl appearance in school history. Georgia State (6-7) saw its four-game winning streak snapped, while San Jose State improved to 6-7.

Sun Belt Player of the Year Nick Arbuckle was held to just 14-of-29 passing for 208 yards and two touchdowns, but still finished the season with a Sun Belt Conference single-season record of 4,368 yards.
