YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Dominique White ran for 164 yards and three touchdowns on Saturday, leading Eastern Michigan to a 31-23 victory over Akron.

White scored twice, on runs of 14 and 1 yards, to give the Eagles (3-2, 1-0 Mid-American) a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter. Clayton Moore threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to Keith Sconiers for the Zips (1-4, 0-2) to cut the deficit in half.

White's third TD run, a 2-yarder, gave Eastern Michigan a 24-10 lead on its first drive of the third quarter. Quarterback Alex Gillett scored the final touchdown for the Eagles, on a 4-yard run with 12:43 left to make it 31-16. Gillett attempted only nine passes, completing four, as the Eagles ran for 228 yards.

Moore also caught a TD pass for Akron, an 8-yarder from running back Jawon Chisholm, in the third quarter. Chisholm ran for 122 yards and a TD.
