BOONE, N.C. -- Kameron Bryant was 27 of 33 for 381 yards with four total touchdowns, two passing and two rushing, to lead Appalachian State over Georgian Southern 38-14 on Saturday.

Georgia Southern (4-3, 2-3) scored the first points of the game on a 9-yard run by Jerick McKinnon.
McKinnon sprained his ankle in the second quarter while the score was tied. Kevin Ellison relieved him at quarterback and ran for 95 yards and a touchdown.
