CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Senior quarterback Duran Lawson went 12-for-21 for 220 yards and three touchdowns to lead The Citadel to its highest score in almost 100 years with a 76-0 shutout of Webber International on Saturday.

Senior running back Tory Cooper added 113 yards on 16 carries and two touchdowns for the Bulldogs (2-0), who are 2-0 for the first time since 1997.

The Bulldogs put up 514 yards of total offense while holding the Warriors (0-3) to only 176 yards.

Webber quarterback Andrew Carr was 16 of 33 for 135 yards and one interception. Carr also had nine carries for a loss of 12 yards.

The Citadel scored in the first two minutes of the game on a 24-yard pass from Lawson to Andre Roberts, who finished with three catches for 86 yards. Four minutes later, Lawson scored again on a 6-yard run.

In the third quarter, Carver Wright returned a fumble six yards for a score and minutes later Ryan Jones returned an interception 18 yards to make it 62-0 at the end of the third. The final score came when Mel Capers blocked a punt into the end zone -- one of three blocked punts for the Bulldogs.

Mike Adams kicked 10 extra points and two field goals.

The Citadel's highest-scoring game was 99 points against Porter Military Academy in 1909.
