MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -- Central Michigan's defense kept giving the ball back to Dan LeFevour and the sophomore quarterback took advantage of the opportunities with a career game.

LeFevour ran for four touchdowns and passed for two more and Central Michigan capitalized on seven turnovers to beat Army 47-23 on Saturday.

"We take what the defense gives us and use it to make plays on offense," LeFevour said. "It starts up front and I really think we schemed them well and knew what to expect."

LeFevour had three first-half rushing touchdowns and finished with 100 yards on 14 carries. He completed 30-of-39 passes for 251 yards for the Chippewas (4-3).

LeFevour's four rushing touchdowns ties a school record with Robbie Mixon, who had four against Eastern Michigan on Nov. 22, 2002.

The Black Knights (3-4) lost their sixth straight road game and eighth consecutive away from Michie Stadium. Three of Army's seven turnovers resulted in CMU scoring drives in the second quarter.

"I'm disappointed in how we played today," Army coach Stan Brock said. "I'm disappointed in turning the ball over seven times. We didn't play nearly well enough to win."

Carson Williams split quarterback time with Kevin Dunn for the Black Knights, passing for 201 yards and two touchdowns. Each threw a second-half touchdown pass to Jeremy Trimble.

Trimble had career highs of 11 receptions for 169 passing yards.

Following a first quarter safety forced by Rod Murray, Army took a 9-7 lead on Williams' 15-yard touchdown pass to Corey Anderson.

LeFevour regained the lead for Central Michigan with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Bryan Anderson.

LeFevour added a 15-yard scoring pass to Justin Hoskins to break Jeff Bender's school career record of 38. He also rushed for two scores to give the Chippewas a 33-16 halftime lead.

Central Michigan defensive back Josh Gordy had three of Central Michigan's five interceptions, including a 15-yard touchdown return with 4:20 remaining to play to seal the win.

"It was phenomenal," Gordy said. "I didn't even realize it was a record. We were looking at some of those records recently, and it's nice to start to break some of them."
