STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) -- Jayson Foster ran for one touchdown and
threw for another while completing all 10 of his passes to lead Georgia Southern to a 50-21 Southern Conference victory over Western Carolina today.

Foster, who led Division I Football Championship Subdivision rushers with an average of 231.2 yards per game, had only 96 yards rushing, but he was effective throwing the football.

The 5-foot-9, 164-pound senior was 10-for-10 passing for 147 yards, including a 29-yard scoring pass to Michael McIntosh. Foster is now 27-for-30 in his last two games and his perfect performance against the Catamounts was a new school single game completion record.

Georgia Southern (3-1, 1-1 Southern Conference) led 27-0 at the half, and scored on its first six possessions as it easily defeated Western Carolina (1-4, 0-1).

Georgia Southern now leads the series 16-2, and the Catamounts have not beaten the Eagles since 1994. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
