HAMMOND, La. (AP) -- In his final regular-season home game, Southeastern Louisiana running back Ray Perkins rushed for a career-high 188 yards and scored three touchdowns as the Lions piled up 570 yards in total offense to beat Texas College 54-14 Thursday night.

Perkins scored on runs of 1, 7 and 4 yards and became the first Southeastern player to rush for 1,000 yards since Jerry Butler ran for 1,092 yards in 1984. The Vanderbilt transfer, who has 1,014 yards rushing on the season, added a pair of receptions to push his all-purpose total to 1,443 yards.

Southeastern (7-3) scored on its first four possessions as Martin Hankins threw three touchdowns in the first half and completed 27-of-35 passes for 332 yards and four touchdowns. His first TD pass went to Jeffery Howard, who ended the night with seven receptions for a career-high 108 yards.

Hankins, who completed a Division I-AA record 21 consecutive passes last week at Jacksonville, completed his first six passes against the out-manned Steers (5-6), who dropped their third straight game to end the season.

Texas College got on the board in the second quarter when Broderick Walker caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Olan Johnson to cap a 10-play, 85-yard drive. Johnson hit Mark Lewis with a 6 yard touchdown pass in the fourth to make it 54-14.
