MOREHEAD, Ky. -- Brandon Bornhauser ran for two touchdowns and Austin Gahafer passed for two and ran for another to lead Morehead State past Davidson 45-14 on Saturday and give Rob Tenyer his first victory as the Eagles' head coach.
The Eagles (1-4, 1-1 Pioneer League) rushed for 253 yards. Gahafer completed 25 of 36 passes for another 238.
Morehead, with 12 starters on offense and defense who are freshmen or sophomores, had started 0-4 for first time since 2006. But the Eagles defense, which had been giving up an average of 592 yards, held the Wildcats (0-4, 0-1) to 273 in helping end the streak.
John Cook scored from 3 yards out and his conversion run gave Davidson its only lead at 8-7 in the first quarter. Morehead responded with three unanswered touchdowns, ending with Gahafer's 17-yard score to John Cornwall, to take a 28-8 lead with 5:42 left before halftime.
