CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Malcolm Dixon threw three touchdowns to help Charleston Southern beat VMI 32-14 in a Big South Conference showdown Saturday.

Charleston Southern (2-4, 1-1) scored the only points of the first quarter on two Dixon touchdown passes, one of 15-yards to Zach Frazier and a 31-yard completion to Larry Jones III. Dixon finished 5 of 6 for 88 yards.

VMI (2-4, 1-1) answered quickly, scoring early in the second quarter when Jabari Turner's 3-yard run cut the lead to 13-7. But the Keydets failed to get any closer.

Charleston Southern then scored 19 unanswered points, using an effective rushing attack and a strong second half defense to seal the victory.

The Buccaneers amassed 307 yards rushing on 66 carries, while the defense did not allow any second half points. VMI's only score came late in the fourth quarter when John Washington returned a fumble 70 yards.
