Presbyterian over VMI 49-35

Tobi Antigha caught two touchdowns and rushed for another to

blunt a late game VMI rally and help Presbyterian win its Big South

opener 49-35 on Saturday.

Antigha had seven receptions for 136 yards. His 39-yard

touchdown run with less than a minute left in the game sealed the

win for the Blue Hose (2-4, 1-0 Big South).

Heys McMath was 21-of-33 for 322 yards and two touchdowns.

Running back Blake Roberts led the Blue Hose ground game with 77

rushing yards.

The Keydets (1-6, 0-2) struggled in the first half, scoring a

single touchdown and missing a field goal from 30 yards. Trailing

35-14 at the end of the third quarter, they mounted a 4th quarter

rally with two A.J. Augustine TD passes on back-to-back possessions

to narrow the Presbyterian lead to 42-35.

VMI has not won a road game in the Big South in three years.
