JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Chris Horton passed for 206 yards and two touchdowns to lead Jacksonville to a 24-16 win over Butler on Saturday.

Horton's total moved him into second place on the Dolphins' career passing yardage list with 4,445 yards. He needs 423 yards in next week's season finale against Wagner to surpass Mike Sturgill as the school's all-time leader.

Horton had 164 of his passing yards and both scores in the first half as Jacksonville (3-7, 2-5) held a 21-3 halftime lead. Horton connected with Geavon Tribble on a 70-yard scoring play just 55 seconds into the game. His second TD came late in the first half when he combined with Cameron Abdallah from 17 yards with 1:54 left in the second quarter.

Jacksonville's third score came on a 4-yard run from Rudell Small early in the game as the Dolphins held a 14-0 lead in the opening five minutes. Michael Zacco added a 27-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to close out the Dolphins' scoring.

After gaining just 122 yards and scoring three points in the first half, Butler (4-7, 0-7) was more productive in the second half with 159 yards and a pair of touchdown runs by quarterback Matt Kobli (11 yards) and running back Derek North (13 yards).

Butler had two late drives in attempt to score and add a two-point conversion, but Kobli had passes intercepted by Nobel Robson and James Mills. Mills pick was his fifth of the season, tying a school record.
