CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) - Shepard Little had 12 carries for 130 yards and a touchdown on Saturday, and Eastern Illinois ran past Tennessee State for a 28-3 win.

Quarterback Jalen Whitlow ran for 91 yards and a touchdown, and threw for another on a pass to Adam Drake. Eastern Illinois (3-5, 3-1 Ohio Valley) finished with 294 yards rushing, averaging 6.8 yards per carry.

Whitlow’s touchdown run went for 67 yards and Little’s for 50 - both in the fourth quarter.

Drake’s 28-yard TD catch opened the scoring for the Panthers, and Anthony Goodman returned an interception 46 yards for a touchdown late in the third to make it 14-3.

Tennessee State (4-5, 1-4) lost its fourth straight, but Lane Clark’s 42-yard field goal early in the third quarter enabled the Tigers to avoid a shutout.
