HOUSTON -- Marcus Wright ran for 131 yards and a touchdown Saturday as Texas Southern beat Central State of Ohio 42-11.

Martin Gilbert ran for two touchdowns and quarterback Riko Smalls ran for another as the Tigers (3-4) finished with 320 yards rushing -- while limiting Central State to 42 -- and 417 yards overall.

Reginald Perry recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for Texas Southern's first TD. The score was 11-11 late in the first half when Gilbert scored the first of his touchdowns and the Tigers rolled from there.

Jeffrey Brooks threw a touchdown pass to Gabriel Nimmons for the Marauders (0-8), who play in Division II.
