STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) -- Jayson Foster ran for one touchdown and threw for another while completing all 10 of his passes to lead Georgia Southern to a 50-21 Southern Conference victory over Western Carolina on Saturday.
Foster, who led Division I Football Championship Subdivision rushers with an average of 231.2 yards per game, had only 96 yards rushing, but he was effective throwing the football.
The 5-foot-9, 164-pound senior was 10-for-10 passing for 147 yards, including a 29-yard scoring pass to Michael McIntosh. Foster is now 27-for-30 in his last two games and his perfect performance against the Catamounts was a new school single game completion record.
Georgia Southern (3-1, 1-1 Southern Conference) led 27-0 at the half, and scored on its first six possessions as it easily defeated Western Carolina (1-4, 0-1).
Georgia Southern now leads the series 16-2, and the Catamounts have not beaten the Eagles since 1994.
Western Carolina turned the ball over four times on fumbles, and Georgia Southern capitalized by scoring 23 points on short drives. On three consecutive possessions in the second quarter the Catamounts fumbled the ball away leading to two touchdowns, a 2 yard run by Mike Hamilton and a 3 yard score by freshman Chris Teal.
Jesse Hartley added a 27-yard field goal, one of three on the day.
Western Carolina wide receiver Eddie Cohen caught eight passes for 212 yards and all three of his teams touchdowns covering 52, 48 and 13 yards, all from Adam Hearns, who completed 10 of 26 for 213 yards.
