College football highlights: Coney throws 2 TD passes in EKU's win at Southeast Missouri

Bennie Coney threw two touchdown passes and Eastern Kentucky took a 27-10 victory over Southeast Missouri on Saturday in Cape Girardeau, Mo.

Coney's 29-yard pass to Bryan Green gave the Colonels (4-2, 3-0 Ohio Valley Conference) their first lead at 17-10 in the third quarter. Coney threw 7 yards to Joel Brown in the fourth and Lucas Williams (Russell County) added his second field goal. Adam Lane rushed for a 6-yard score in the second quarter.

Coney was 20 of 29 for 275 yards. Ben Madon (Bell County) had 117 yards on six catches. Former University of Kentucky running back Dy'Shawn Mobley was held to 13 yards on 11 carries.

Southeast Missouri (2-5, 1-2 Ohio Valley) took a 10-7 lead on Ryan McCrum's field goal in the second half. Dante Vandeven's 3-yard pass to Paul McRoberts gave the Redhawks receiver his 26th career TD reception, tying him with Willie Ponder (2001-02) for the school record. McRoberts made a career-high 10 catches.

Lindsey Wilson 24, Faulkner 19: The Blue Raiders, ranked No. 1 in NAIA, outscored Faulkner 21-3 in the second half to come from behind for a victory at home.

Quarterback Dylan Beasley (Nelson County) completed 16 of 27 attempts for 191 yards, including a pair of touchdowns passes for Lindsey Wilson (6-0, 1-0 Mid-South West). It is the first time in program history that the school has started a season 6-0.

The Blue Raiders' defense had four interceptions, two by former Pleasure Ridge Park standout Joe Lewis. Alex Abner (Pulaski County) and Avery Ford (Scott County) had the others.

Michael Brooks (Collins) led Lindsey Wilson's defense with 11 tackles, which put him just six tackles behind Sam Wilson for the program record for career tackles.

Georgetown 40, Union 7: JJ Jude (Paintsville), Terry Johnson and Zach Harris (Highlands) each ran for a score in the Tigers' win at home. Jude led Georgetown with 80 rushing yards, and he also had three catches for 34 yards.

Doug Jeter scored Union's TD on a 25-yard interception return.

Miles 16, Kentucky State 6: The Thorobreds were held to 197 yards of offense. Sixty-four of those came on a touchdown pass from Ora Johnson to Lavell Cloyd with 38 seconds left. Both are former Bryan Station standouts.

Kentucky State's two-point conversion attempt was no good, and the ensuing onside kick went out of bounds, allowing Miles to run out the clock for the win.

Campbellsville 69, Bethel 21: Tyus Alcorn (Bryan Station) broke a single-game school record with four TD catches in the Tigers' win in McKenzie, Tenn.

His final TD of the day also broke the single-season all-time mark. He has 13.
