Eugene tosses 7 TDs, breaks Doug Williams' TD mark

DALLAS (AP) -- Bruce Eugene threw for 618 yards and seven touchdowns and broke Doug Williams' school record for career scoring passes as Grambling State beat Prairie View 56-7 Saturday night.

Eugene, who completed 34 of 50 passes, fed three 100-yard receivers, led by Henry Tolbert with nine catches for 179 yards. Tolbert's scoring catch of 9 yards was the longest among the first four touchdown tosses by Eugene.

With Grambling State (2-1, 2-0 Southwestern Athletic) comfortably in front in the fourth quarter, Eugene unloaded with long scoring tosses of 56, 35 and 74 yards -- one to each of his 100-yard receivers. The first went to George Piggott, who had six catches for 148 yards, followed by Tolbert and Clyde Edwards, who finished with five receptions for 119 yards.

Eugene now has 96 career touchdown passes, eclipsing the school mark of 94 held by Williams, a former Super Bowl MVP. The 618 yards were a Southwestern Athletic Conference record.

Prairie View (1-2, 0-2) was limited to 232 yards, including just 71 passing. Michael Hill and Chris Gibson combined to complete just eight of 22 passes. Gibson had as many completions as interceptions -- two -- in nine attempts.

Eugene threw for a pair of 6-yard touchdowns in the first quarter, and his 9-yarder to Tolbert put Grambling State ahead 21-0 midway through the second quarter.

After a 2-yard scoring pass to Terrion Rogers in the third quarter, Eugene found Piggott on the 56-yarder early in the fourth.
