E. Washington 2nd half wipes out SD St. 41-17

Quincy Forte ran for a career-high 203 yards to compliment a

record-breaking passing attack as third-seeded Eastern Washington

pulled away from South Dakota State 41-17 in the second round of

the FCS playoffs on a freezing Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles (11-2) are host next weekend to Jacksonville State

(11-3).

While Forte was out-dueling Zach Zenner of SDSU (9-5), the

leading rusher in FCS, and scoring the final touchdown for the

Eagles, Vernon Adams was throwing five touchdown passes, including

two to freshman Cooper Kupp.

With 20 TDs, Kupp broke the school record and Randy Moss’

national record for freshmen. His 81 catches tie the FCS freshman

record.

The game, played at about 12 degrees with wind chill making it

single digits, was tied 14-14 at the half.

Adams hit Zach Wimberly, Kupp and Cory Mitchell in the second

half.

Zenner, who had 1,944 yards, was held to 71.
