Stephen F. Austin 35, Southeastern Louisiana 10

HAMMOND, La. (AP) -- Louie Runnels rushed for 205 yards and scored a third-quarter touchdown and Stephen F. Austin's defense held Southeastern Louisiana to 63 yards total offense in the second half as it pulled away to a 35-10 victory Saturday night.

Danny Southall rushed for two touchdowns and passed for another as SFA (2-6, 2-1) won its second straight Southland Conference contest on the road and spoiled Southeastern's homecoming game.

Southeastern fell to 2-7 overall and 1-3 in the SLC, spoiling the debut of interim coach Mike Lucas who replaced Dennis Roland who took a medical leave of absence earlier this week as he continues battling an infection after overcoming non-Hodgkins lymphoma last year.

Runnels scored on a 1-yard run that capped a 13-play, 91-yard drive that gave SFA a 21-10 lead. Brian Ford later returned an interception 39 yards for a touchdown to extend the Lumberjacks' lead to 28-10 after three quarters.

Southall, who went 11-of-17 for 94 yards, scored on a 1-yard run on SFA's opening possession and gave the Lumberjacks a 14-10 lead with 17 seconds remaining in the first half on a 7-yard score.

With 10:40 remaining in the game, Southall gave SFA a 35-10 lead with an 18-yard pass to Nick Rhodes.

Southeastern, which finished with 176 yards total offense, took a 10-7 lead when halfback Jay Lucas tossed a 3-yard touchdown to Byron Ross with 2:52 remaining in the first half. The Lions added a first-quarter safety when a snap sailed over punter Ryan Gooch's head and was kicked out of the end zone.

True freshman Bradd Schlosser completed 18 of 30 passes for 153 yards for the Lions, but was sacked five times.
