Associated Press
The college football roundup …
CULLOWHEE ó Just like he did at Carson, Shaun Warren is wowing the crowds at Western Carolina.
Warren was the star of the Catamountsí 52-31 win over Mars Hill on Saturday.
Warren and Mars Hill’s Jonas Randolph put on a ground-game duel in the first quarter, which ended with the Catamounts ahead 21-14. Warren scored on runs of 11, 30 and 10 yards, and Randolph scored from 56 and 20 yards.
Warren finished with 203 yards on 21 carries, and Randolph had 174 yards on 25 carries.
Mars Hill’s Jon Richt, the son of Georgia coach Mark Richt, was 11-for-33 for 105 yards.
It was Brandon Pechloff kept Western going. He threw two touchdown passes in the second quarter as Western broke open a close game. Pechloff connected with Jacoby Mitchell for a 75-yard score that put the Catamounts (1-1) ahead 31-17.
Appalachian State 58, N.C. A&T 6
BOONE ó Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore earned his 200th win at the school as the Mountaineers routed North Carolina A&T 58-6 on Saturday.
Moore, 200-80 in 23 seasons at the school, has won 71 percent of his games. The win came after a 53-point loss to Virginia Tech last weekend.
DeAndre Presley ran for two touchdowns and passed for two more as the Mountaineers (1-1) rolled up 491 yards on offense. Presley completed 19 of 23 passes for 197 yards. Brian Quick caught 11 passes for 113 yards and two touchdowns.
Cedric Baker Boney rushed for 11 yards and a touchdown as the Mountaineers gained 255 yards on the ground.
The Aggies (1-1) were productive on offense, gaining 335 yards. However, they turned the ball over three times and converted just four of 12 third-down possessions. Lewis Kindle led the Aggies’ offense with 165 yards passing and a touchdown.
Georgia Southern 62, Tusculum 21
STATEBORO, Ga. ó Georgia Southern rolled to an easy 62-21 win in its home opener over Tusculum on Saturday.
The Eagles (2-0) led the Pioneers (1-1) 21-14 before getting a 38-yard field goal from Adrian Mora on the final play of the first half.
Davidson 28, Lenoir-Rhyne 10
DAVIDSON ó Jonathan Carkhuff threw for 324 yards and three touchdowns to lead Davidson past Lenoir-Rhyne 28-10.
The Wildcats (1-1) have won four of their last six games against the NCAA Division II Bears, but still trail 9-8 in the series which began in 1910.
Davidson, coming off a 40-16 loss at Georgetown, led 7-0 when Lenoir-Rhyne got to the Wildcats 22 early in the second quarter. Peter Kidwell intercepted a Major Herron pass at the goal line, then Davidson drove 80 yards, culminating in a 4-yard touchdown pass from Carkhuff to Jonathan Adams.
Carkhuff, who was 36 of 49 and had his second straight 300-yard game, found Adams again for a 29-yard score as time expired in the first half.
Although Lenoir-Rhyne (1-1) amassed 352 total yards compared to Davidson’s 400, the Bears’ only touchdown came with 58 seconds left on Nick Stutts’ 13-yard pass from Reuben Haynes.
Delaware State 31, Shaw 27
DOVER, Del. ó Nick Elko and Darius Jackson connected on a 13-yard touchdown with 35 seconds left to give Delaware State a 31-27 victory over Shaw.
S.C. State 26, Bethune-Cookman 18
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. ó Dominique Ellis returned an interception 55 yards for a touchdown with 4 minutes left to preserve South Carolina State’s 26-18 victory over Bethune-Cookman in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener.
