JONESBORO, Ark. -- Ryan Aplin passed for 322 yards and three touchdowns Saturday as Arkansas State defeated North Texas 37-14, giving Arkansas State its best record through eight games since 1986.

Aplin threw touchdown passes of 12 yards each to Allen Muse and Taylor Stockemer in the second quarter as the Red Wolves (6-2, 4-0 Sun Belt) raced to a 31-0 halftime lead.

ASU took the lead on a 4-yard run by Frankie Jackson and added to it on a 48-yard field goal by Bobby Zalud in the first quarter. The Red Wolves also scored when holder Neely Sullivant ran in a fake field goal attempt from 14 yards out.
