Eastern Kentucky handles Tennessee Tech 24-10

Quarterback Jared McClain rushed for two touchdowns to help
Eastern Kentucky move past Tennessee Tech 24-10 in an Ohio Valley
Conference matchup Saturday.

McClain, who finished 11-of-19 with 169 yards passing, scored
from 10 yards out in the first quarter and added an 8-yard
touchdown run in the second quarter to lead the Colonels (4-3, 2-1
OVC) to a 17-3 halftime lead.

Wide Receiver Jeff Glover threw a 29-yard scoring pass to Ike
Ariguzo to extend the lead in the fourth quarter.

The Golden Eagles (3-5, 0-4) responded with their lone touchdown
as Jared Davis threw a 16-yard score to Krys Cates. They got the
ball twice in the last seven minutes, but both drives were stalled
on failed fourth-down conversions.

Eastern Kentucky’s Devin Borders had three receptions for 68
yards. Glover had 64 yards on five catches.

Davis was 21-of-42 for 173 yards with an interception for
Tennessee Tech.
