Morehead State 15, Butler 7

MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) -- Brian Yost threw two touchdown passes to fullback Casey McCoy to lead Morehead State to a 15-7 win over Butler on Saturday night.

Butler (0-3) took advantage of a short Morehead State punt to score first. The Bulldogs put together a seven-play drive capped by Ian Nelson's 2-yard touchdown pass to Billy Nardini.

Morehead (1-2) answered with a 35-yard scoring drive. Yost ran 26 yards on the first play, and three plays later he threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to McCoy. Daniel Vagni picked up a bad snap on the point-after attempt and hit James Spencer-Howell for the two-point conversion to make it 8-7.

Yost connected with McCoy for another 8-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter.

Yost completed 9-of-21 passes for 106 yards. The Eagles rushed for 201 yards, led by Yost's 67 yards on 14 carries.

Nelson connected on 20-of-31 passes for 170 yards but had two interceptions. Morehead State limited Butler to 82 yards on the ground, and the Bulldogs lost two fumbles. Justin Campbell led Butler with 16 carries for 50 yards.
