CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) -- Ryan West came in for injured starting quarterback Kory Faulkner to throw for two touchdowns to lead Southern Illinois to its first victory of the year, a 31-10 win over Charlston (WV) at home Saturday.

West came in to throw a 22-yard touchdown pass to LaSteven McKinney on his third play of the game, giving Southern Illinois a 21-3 lead going into the half. West threw for another touchdown in the third, a 10-yard pass to Kyle Newquist.
