CLINTON, S.C. (AP) -- Christian Reyes ran 37 yards for a third-quarter touchdown and Mark Deboy tacked on a pair of second-half field goals to carry Charleston Southern to a 27-16 win at Presbyterian Saturday.

Reyes ran for 114 yards on 20 carries to lead the Buccaneers (8-1, 2-0 Big South) to their sixth win on the road this season after going 2-20 the previous four seasons.

The Buccaneers face Coastal Carolina in a Big South Conference showdown next week in Charleston.

Heys McMath threw a pair of third-quarter touchdowns to bring the Blue Hose (3-5, 1-1 Big South) back, cutting the lead to 21-16 in the third quarter.
