COLUMBIA, KY - The No. 14-ranked Lindsey Wilson College football team defeated visiting Belhaven (Miss.) 91-14 in record-breaking fashion on Saturday, October 25, 2014, at Blue Raider Stadium, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY.



The Blue Raiders (6-2, 3-0 MSC East) accumulated just 525 yards of total offense, but managed to find the endzone on 13 separate occasions.

Lindsey Wilson jumped ahead in the first quarter by a 28-0 mark thanks to a pair of touchdown tosses by Branden Cresap to Allen Cooks and Chaz Barnes, and a pair of defensive touchdowns. Austin Howell and Justin Wade each picked off Belhaven quarterback Mickey Forrest and returned it all the way to the endzone.

The Blue Raiders added five more scores in the second quarter alone. Jalen Sublett and Josh Haney each found the endzone on the ground before Cresap tossed his third score of the day to Cortez Barber. Sublett and Haney each added another score on the ground to put the Blue Raiders up 63-0 before the half.

Belhaven (2-6, 0-3 MSC West) was able to find the endzone just before halftime as Eric Mosley completed a touchdown pass to Darien Thomas for an 11-yard score.

The third quarter saw quarterback Dylan Beasley open the scoring with an 83-yard catch and run touchdown to Josh Noel. The 83-yard touchdown is the longest in Lindsey Wilson program history.

Beasley would add another touchdown toss on the next drive, but in an unconventional way.

He completed a pass to Josh Williams who fumbled at the Belhaven 32-yard line. The ball was kicked forward by a Blazer defender multiple times into the endzone where Collin Keen was able to recover the ball for the touchdown.

Lindsey Wilson scored their third defensive touchdown of the day after Mosley fumbled in his own endzone on a dropback and Keegan Kendrick pounced on the loose ball for the score.

Belhaven added their second touchdown on the day as Mosley found Thomas again with 12:11 left to play in the game.

The final Blue Raider score came with 10:18 to play as Beasley tossed his third touchdown to Carmetrick Ross to make it 91-14.

Multiple program records were broken in the Blue Raider victory.

The 91 points scored are the most in school history, surpassing the 72 points scored last season in Lindsey Wilsonís victory over Union (Barbourville, KY).

The 77 point margin of victory is also the largest in school history since the 63 points set in the Union game.

Caleb Keeton was a perfect 13-for-13 on extra point attempts, breaking the former school record of eight.

Cresap threw for 228 yards and three touchdowns on the day in his one half of action. He eclipsed 10,000 passing yards for his career after a completion in the second quarter to Emilio Gonzalez.

Beasley threw for 189 yards and three scores in his second-half relief effort.

Jared Kunkel and Steven Turner led the Blue Raiders defensively with six tackles apiece. All six of Turnerís efforts were solo tackles.

Turner and Wade both finished with two interceptions on the day while Howell and Trent Mueller each had one.

The seven turnovers forced by the Blue Raider defense matches a program record and is the second time this season Lindsey Wilson has hit the mark. In the last three games this season, Lindsey Wilson has a total of 20 takeaways.

Mosley finished with 187 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns and four interceptions. He also led the team with 43 rushing yards on 14 attempts. Greg Livingston racked up 76 receiving yards on 12 grabs. - News from Lindsey Wilson College
