BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Kevin Moffett returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown and Quincy Richard had five TD passes as Southern U. cruised to a 65-0 victory over Allen on Saturday night.

Southern (8-1) pounded out 487 yards total offense while limiting Allen (4-5) to 138 yards.

Richard was 19 of 28 for 263 yards in three quarters of action.

Javon accounted for most of Allen's offense rushing for 74 yards on 11 carries.

Moffett's return and Richard's TD passes to Chris Davis and James Vernon sparked Southern to a 23-point first quarter. The defense also contributed with a sack of Allen quarterback Nick Walker for a team safety.

Southern added three more scores in the second quarter with the highlight coming on a dazzling 68-yard punt return by Vernon.

Richard's 30-yard TD pass to Ard gave Southern a 44-0 lead at halftime.
