HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- Tim Flanders ran 26 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns to lift Sam Houston State over Texas State 31-29 on Saturday.

Flanders became the first player for the Bearkats (6-5, 4-3 Southland) to gain 100 or more yards in seven games in a season.

After Karrington Bush ran in for the touchdown to make it 29-31 with 2:38 left, the Bobcats (4-7, 1-6) tried to tie it with a 2-point conversion. Tim Hawkins threw to Darius Bolton in the end-zone, but the catch was dropped.

The Bearkats ran out time on the next drive for the win.

Hawkins finished throwing for 231 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another.

Sam Houston State's Ridgeway Frank ran for 27 yards and two touchdowns.
