CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Armanti Edwards ran for 291 yards, scoring two touchdowns on the ground and two in the air, to lead Appalachian State to a 45-24 Southern Conference win against The Citadel on Saturday.
Edwards was 10-of-20 passing with 148 yards -- giving the quarterback an impressive 439 yards total offense for the Mountaineers (7-2, 3-2 SoCon). Running back Kevin Richardson added 68 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown.
The Bulldogs (5-4, 3-3) were led by freshman quarterback Bart Blanchard, who had 64 yards rushing, 197 yards passing with two scores -- one on the ground and one in the air.
The Mountaineers jumped out to a 10-0 lead with just under 10 minutes left in the first quarter after a Julian Rauch 39-yard field goal and Edwards' 80-yard run for a touchdown.
The Citadel took advantage of a fumble deep in Appalachian State territory to cut the lead to 10-7. But the Mountaineers reeled off three unanswered scores to go up 31-7 with 8:07 remaining in the first half.
The Citadel was able to get one more score to cut the halftime lead to 31-14.
The Bulldogs came out hot in the second half with a field goal and Blanchard's rushing score to cut the lead to 31-24 at the end of the third quarter, but that's as close as they would get.
