Citadel 48, Virginia Military 21

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Tory Cooper rushed for 150 yards and three touchdowns to lead The Citadel to a 48-21 win against VMI on Saturday.

The Bulldogs (4-6) led 35-7 at halftime. Duran Lawson went 14-of-22 for 171 yards and two touchdowns for The Citadel, while Andre Roberts led the team with four catches for 32 yards.

VMI (1-9) cut the Bulldogs' lead to 48-21 with 6:48 left in the game with a 25-yard run by Sean Mizzer.

Mizzer lead the team in rushes with 80 yards on 16 carries and two touchdowns, while Jonathan Wilson completed 7 of his 14 passes for 86 yards for VMI.

The win means The Citadel will keep the Sliver Shako for the third-straight year. The trophy, shaped like the military hat worn by cadets at both schools, goes to the winner of "The Military Classic of the South."

It has found a home at The Citadel in recent years, with the Bulldogs winning 11 of the last 15.
