JACKSONVILLE, Ala. -- Kory Chapman rushed for a school-record 298 yards and one touchdown as Jacksonville State defeated Tennessee-Martin 34-24 on Saturday.

Chapman, who rushed 29 times for an average of 10.3 yards per carry, broke the previous record of 275 set by Boyce Callahan in 1970.

The Gamecocks (3-3, 2-1 Ohio Valley Conference) attempted only 16 passes as Chapman carried most of the offensive load. One of those passes was a 22-yard touchdown from Maurice Mullins to Craig Agee as Jacksonville State opened a 13-0 lead in the first quarter.

UT-Martin (2-5, 1-2) closed the gap to 13-7 on a 17-yard TD pass from Brady Wahlberg to Andrew Staten.

That score stood until midway through the third quarter, when Chapman broke off his longest run of the day, a 58-yard scoring dash.

After a 39-yard field goal by Brent Harris brought the Skyhawks within 20-10, Mullins capped a nine-play, 65-yard drive with a 15-yard scoring run.

Wahlberg threw two more TDs in the fourth quarter, the last with less than a minute to play. He finished with 369 yards passing on 44-of-65 passing but also threw two interceptions. Grentheus Taylor had 15 catches for 161 yards.
