LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP)—Mike Brown passed for two touchdowns and rushed for two more Saturday as Liberty routed Stony Brook 54-28.
Brown completed 20 of 31 passes for 334 yards, including touchdowns of 65 and 79 yards to Pat Kelly.
Brown also ran for touchdowns of 15 and 2 yards, but it was Matt Bevins’ 50-yard field goal that finally gave the Flames (8-3, 5-1 Big South Conference) the lead for good, 30-28, with 8:24 left in the third quarter.
Bevins’ field goal was the first of 27 unanswered points the Flames scored to pull away from the Seawolves (6-5, 5-1). Michael Coulter had thrown two touchdown passes and Miguel Maysonet had run for two touchdowns until Liberty’s final spurt on offense.
The Flames ran up 558 total yards to Stony Brook’s 264. Four turnovers (two fumbles, two interceptions) also hurt the Seawolves.
