Salukis beat Indiana State to stay in thick of MVFC race

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) Nic Baker threw a pair of touchdown passes to Avante Cox, Javon Williams Jr. ran in for two more and Southern Illinois defeated Indiana State 47-21 on Saturday.

Leading 19-7 at halftime, SIU broke the game open with a 21-point third quarter that included a Baker-to-Cox score, Anthony Knighton's pick-6 and Donnavan Spencer's short TD run.
