Eastern Illinois beats Tennessee State for first victory

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Harry Woodbery threw three touchdowns passes, Darshon McCullough rushed for 155 yards and a score and Jaelin Benefield ran for 105 yards and two TDs as Eastern Illinois scored the final 21 points to notch its first victory of the season, beating Tennessee State 49-38 on Saturday.

Demarco Corbin ran 6 yards for a TD to cap a game-opening 13-play, 67-yard drive, but Tennessee State missed the extra point and led 6-0. Benefield scored on a 45-yard run to put Eastern Illinois (1-9, 1-5 Ohio Valley Conference) up 7-6. The Tigers used Cameron Rosendahl's 3-yard TD run and a 2-point conversion run by Chris Rowland to take a 14-7 lead, but McCullough scored on a 15-yard run with 41 seconds left in the first quarter to knot the score at 14.

The Tigers (2-8, 1-5) put together back-to-back TDs - scoring on Rowland's 57-yard punt return and Rosendahl's 35-yard scoring strike to Rowland - to take a 28-14 lead. Woodbery answered with a 12-yard TD toss to James Sheehan, but Rosendahl connected with Steven Newbold for a 14-yard TD and a 35-21 Tigers' lead at halftime.
