STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) - Kevin Ellison ran for two touchdowns and threw for another in Georgia Southern’s 47-24 victory over winless Idaho on Saturday night.

Ellison was 7-of-11 passing for 96 yards for the Eagles (5-2, 4-0 Sun Belt). Matt Breida ran for 155 yards on 19 carries and Alfred Ramsby added 98 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.

Two early touchdowns by Ellison and one by backup QB Favian Upshaw gave Georgia Southern a 20-10 halftime lead.

In the third quarter, a 14-yard TD run by Ellison and a 3-yard score by Ramsby extended the lead to 33-10 before a pair of touchdowns by the Vandals’ Elijhaa Penny closed the gap to nine.

A 26-yard interception return by Matt Dobson early in the fourth and Ean Days’ running score in the final seconds sealed Idaho’s fate.

Matt Linehan completed 19 of 31 passes for 230 yards for the Vandals (0-6, 0-4).
