Associated Press

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Ronald Murray rushed for three touchdowns in the third quarter to lead Jacksonville State to a 41-17 victory over Tennessee Tech on Saturday.

Murray, who rushed for only 26 yards on six carries, is the first Gamecock to score three rushing touchdowns in a quarter since Marcus Mitchell against Cumberland in 2001. He scored on runs of 6, 2 and 2 yards.

Daniel Jackson led the Gamecocks (7-3, 5-2 Ohio Valley Conference) with 107 yards on 16 carries.

Jacksonville State's Ryan Perrilloux was 21 of 32 for 252 yards.

Lee Sweeney played the first series for the Golden Eagles (3-8, 1-6), giving way to Josh Lowery, who completed the game with 191 yards, hitting 19 of his 34 attempts.

Tim Benford caught his 10th touchdown pass of the season, tying the Tennessee Tech's single season record. He finished with six catches for 67 yards.

The Golden Eagles were missing leading rusher Henry Sailes, who will miss the rest of the season with a broken hand that was injured against Tennessee State.

Without Sailes, Tennessee Tech was held to just 94 yards on the ground.
