SC State 33, Georgia State 6

Richard Cue passed for 300 yards and three touchdowns to lead

South Carolina State to a 33-6 rout of Georgia State on Thursday in

the season opener for both teams.

On the game’s third play from scrimmage, Cue hit Lennel Elmore

for a 72-yard scoring pass. He later threw touchdown passes of 22

and 13 yards to Tyler McDonald. On the night, he was 19 for 29 with

two interceptions. But those miscues hardly mattered.

Ben McLane, Georgia State’s freshman quarterback, struggled. He

completed 7 of 15 passes for just 54 yards and was sacked five

times. On the Panthers’ first possession of the second half, Matt

Ehasz kicked a 25-yard field goal to pull Georgia State within

14-6.

But Cue capped off the ensuing drive with a 13-yard strike to

McDonald to put the game away for good.

Dominique Mitchell returned a late fumble for a 68-yard

touchdown.
