CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Cooper Kupp became the Division I leader for career receiving yards, added to his D-I career touchdown catch record with two more and Eastern Washington scored seven touchdowns after halftime in what is, technically, a come-from-behind 63-30 win over UC Davis on Saturday.

Kupp finished with 12 catches for 274 yards - with TD catches of 32 and 71 yards - and set the Division I receiving-yards record with 130 in the first half. He came in 107 yards behind Terrell Hudgins (Elon, 2006-09) and ended the game with 5,417 yards receiving. He has 64 TD receptions.

Gage Gubrud passed for 486 yards and six touchdowns, leading a furious comeback after halftime, when the Eagles (3-1, 2-0 Big Sky) trailed 23-14. Gubrud opened the half with a lightning drive capped by a 17-yard strike to Shaq Hill. After a UC Davis turnover, Gubrud faked a handoff at the 1 and bounced left to score.

The 63 points are Eastern’s most since 2001 (66 versus Simon Fraser).

Manusamoa Luuga rushed for a career-high 160 yards with three TDs for UC Davis (1-4, 0-2).
