MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - Duvante Lane scored three rushing touchdowns and carried the ball 14 times for 99 yards to lead Butler over Morehead St. 44-6 in Pioneer League play on Saturday.

Despite the Bulldogs’ offensive output, it was Butler’s defense that established control early. Xavier Colvin’s sack of Lawson Page forced a fumble that Matt Hawkins recovered for Butler (3-3, 1-2) at the Eagles’ 35-yard line.

Anthony Scaccia then ended a 6-play drive with a 2-yard touchdown run to give Butler the lead. Later in the first, Scaccia added a second touchdown with a 19-yard run for a two-touchdown lead. The Bulldogs took a 24-0 lead into halftime.

Butler ran for 253 yards on 44 carries and scored six touchdowns on the ground. Moorhead St. (2-4, 1-2) was stymied at the line of scrimmage rushing 21 times for 48 yards.

Page threw for 135 yards and average just 5.6 yards per completion.
