Associated Press

BOONE, N.C. -- Armanti Edwards threw three touchdowns and Devon Moore rushed for three to lead Appalachian State in a 52-16 rout of Georgia Southern on Saturday.

Edwards was 26-for-34 with 320 yards and rushed for 39 yards for the Mountaineers (5-2, 4-0 Southern Conference). Travaris Cadet rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.

The score was tied 7-7 midway through the opening quarter, but Appalachian State outscored the Eagles (4-4, 3-2) 35-3 until early in the third, capping the spree on Moore's 10-yard scamper for a 42-10 lead.

Georgia Southern defensive back Hudson Presume was taken to Watauga Medical Center in Boone after injuring his neck on the same play in which he forced a fumble. He was later released to travel home with the team after regaining full movement and his tests came back negative.
