CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Antoine Custer Jr. ran for 147 yards and two touchdowns to lead Eastern Washington to a 31-19 victory over Montana State on Saturday.

Gage Gubrud threw for 224 yards and a touchdown for Eastern Washington (5-2, 4-0 Big Sky Conference), which has won 12 straight conference games, two shy of the program record. Custer scored on a 2-yard run in the first quarter, and his 3-yard touchdown run with about three minutes left in the game capped a 13-play, 78-yard drive.

Gubrud tossed a 1-yard touchdown pass to Nsimba Webster, and Sam McPherson’s 23-yard scoring run stretched the Eagles’ lead to 24-7.

Chris Murray scored on a 54-yard run and threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Logan Jones for Montana State (2-4, 2-2).

Nick LaSane scored on a 5-yard plunge to pull the Bobcats to 24-19 with 9:32 left. Dre’ Sonte Dorton fumbled on the ensuing kickoff and Montana State’s Ben Folsom recovered the ball. But the Eagles’ Keenan Williams forced a Murray fumble two plays later.
