MURRAY, Ky. -- T.J. Pryor threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score, but Eastern Kentucky needed a late extra-point miss to hold off a Murray State rally in the Colonels' 34-33 win Saturday.

Pryor, who threw for 179 yards with an interception, notched his 1-yard scoring run one minute into the fourth quarter to put Eastern Kentucky (5-3, 4-1 Ohio Valley Conference) up 34-20.

But Casey Brockman, who finished with 332 yards passing and three touchdowns, got the Racers (4-4, 2-3) back in it. He connected with Ja-Vonta Trotter on an 18-yarder with 11:36 left to pull Murray State within seven points, and hit Trotter again on a 19-yarder less than six minutes later to pull within one.

Brandon Potts couldn't connect on the extra-point attempt, though, sealing the win for Eastern Kentucky.

The Racers got one last possession with 4:31 to play, but the Colonels held them four-and-out.
