DALLAS -- Bo Levi Mitchell completed 17 of 29 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns to lead Southern Methodist to a 28-21 win over East Carolina on Saturday.

Aldrick Robinson scored on a 96-yard touchdown reception to tie for the longest touchdown pass in SMU history, and the Mustangs (3-2, 2-0 Conference USA) snapped the Pirates' five-game conference winning streak.

Dominique Lindsay led all rushers with 144 yards on 24 attempts for ECU (3-3, 2-1).

The Mustangs scored 21 consecutive points to take a 21-7 lead, capped by safety Rock Dennis' 53-yard interception return with 8:12 left in the third quarter.
