GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Kealand Dirks and Antonio Wilcox rushed for two touchdowns apiece and Furman rolled over VMI 42-10 on Saturday.

Furman (4-3, 3-1 Southern Conference) led 14-10 at intermission and pulled away from the Keydets in the second half.

A seven-play, 75-yard drive on the first possession after halftime resulted in Wilcox’ 16-yard touchdown run.

Furman then used a five-play, 78-yard drive, capped by P.J. Blazejowski’s 57-yard touchdown pass to Andy Schumpert, to take a commanding lead.

Dirks had 82 yards on 23 carries, while Wilcox had 11 carries for 49 yards. Blazejowski finished 9 of 16 for 165 yards passing.

Hodges finished 15 of 28 for 105 yards with a TD for VMI (0-7, 0-4).
