JACKSONVILLE, Ala. -- Ryan Perrilloux threw four touchdown passes to lead Jacksonville State to a 31-21 victory against Murray State on Saturday night.

Perrilloux, who transferred from LSU after its BCS Championship season in 2007, completed 17 of 19 passes for 175 yards for the Gamecocks (5-2, 3-1 Ohio Valley Conference). Maurice Dupree added 79 yards and two touchdowns on five receptions.

Jeff Ehrhardt completed 24 of 42 passes for 171 yards with an interception, and also rushed for 94 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries for the Racers (3-5, 2-2).

Perrilloux connected with Dupree on a 39-yard score in the opening quarter and added a 10-yard scoring pass to Deonte Carter to open the second, giving the Gamecocks a 14-0 lead with 6:51 to go in the first half.

Charlie Jordan's 74-yard run put the Racers on the board, but Perrilloux hit Dupree again with a 21-yard score to give Jacksonville State a 21-7 lead at halftime.

Paul McKinnis and Ehrhardt both scored on 1-yard runs to start the third and fourth quarters, cutting the Gamecocks' advantage to 24-21 with 5:48 to go in the game.

But Perrilloux connected with Alphonso Freeney on a 3-yard pass two minutes later to put the game out of reach.
