 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Rudell Small tied a school record with five touchdowns Saturday to power Jacksonville University to a 55-10 win over UNC-Pembroke.
Small, a freshman, scored on runs of 3, 2, 27 and 4 yards in the first half and added an 8-yard run in the third quarter in his first collegiate start. Small finished with 112 yards in 19 carries, tying the school mark of five TDs set by Greg Portee against LaSalle in 1998, Jacksonville's first season of intercollegiate football.
Jacksonville quarterback Chris Horton connected on 10 of 16 passes for 166 yards all in the first half, including a 48-yard scoring toss to Nathan Conner on JU's opening drive. Jacksonville (1-2) led 35-7 at halftime.
The 45-point margin of victory was the largest in Jacksonville history, eclipsing the 44-point win by JU over LaSalle (58-14) in 1998 when Portee scored the five touchdowns. The Dolphins finished with 507 yards in total offense against UNC-Pembroke.
The Braves (1-3) were led by running back Rashan Kennedy who gained 125 yards in 20 carries and scored Pembroke's only touchdown on a 46-yard run in the second quarter.
On Small's 27-yard TD run, UNC-Pembroke sophomore linebacker Seth Warren suffered a neck injury and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for evaluation.
