E. Kentucky 49, Tennessee St. 7

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) -- Eastern Kentucky amassed more than 530 yards in total offense in defeating visiting Tennessee State 49-7 on Saturday.

Senior tailback Bobby Washington led Eastern Kentucky (6-2, 5-0 OVC) with three touchdowns and had 134 yards rushing. Washington scored two first-quarter touchdowns and another in the third quarter.

Backup tailback C.J. Walker led the Colonels with 138 rushing yards. Colonels' quarterback Allan Holland was 13-21 for 155 yards. He set a new Eastern Kentucky single season record for most consecutive passes thrown without an interception -- a streak of 175 passes without a pick.

Tennessee State (3-4, 2-1 OVC) was led by tailback Javarr Williams, who ran for a touchdown in the first period and accumulated 66 yards on 12 carries.

The win ensures Eastern Kentucky of its 30th consecutive winning season. The Colonels last had a non-winning season in 1977, when they went 5-5.
