SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- Gerald Davis scored a school-record five touchdowns, including four in the first half to lead Missouri State to a 63-7 rout of Indiana State Saturday.

Davis early work gave Missouri State (5-4, 2-3 in the Gateway Conference) a 42-7 halftime lead over winless Indiana State (0-9, 0-5), who were giving up 46.2 points per game.

The previous record of four touchdowns was held by 10 Missouri State players. Davis finished with 82 yards on 14 carries. Kingjack Washington led Missouri State with 104 yards on 13 carries.

Missouri State's defense scored the first touchdown of the second half when Indiana State quarterback Charles Dowdell lost the ball when he was tackled and Jeron Poole returned the ball 43 yards for a touchdown to put Missouri State up 49-7 with 12:46 left in the third quarter.

Quarterback Cody Kirby, who also sat out the second half, was 10 of 12 for 183 yards and a touchdown.

Missouri State had 588 yards of total offense.

Dowdell scored Indiana State's only touchdown on a 5-yard run in the second quarter. He led Indiana State in rushing with 82 yards on 18 carries and threw for 141 yards on 8 of 17 and two interceptions.
