CHARLESTON, South Carolina — Eric Goins made five field goals; The Citadel forced six turnovers, and beat VMI 35-14 on Saturday.

Goins did not miss a field goal, all from inside the 34. Cam Jackson had 12 carries for 100 yards with a 68-yard touchdown run. Quinlan Washington had two interceptions with a touchdown, and Tevin Floyd had a late pick-6 for The Citadel (7-2, 6-0 Southern Conference).

Hayden Alford was 14-of-35 passing for 125 yards with a touchdown and four interceptions for VMI (2-8, 1-5).

Jackson and Washington scored before Alford tossed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Derrick Ziglar to pull the Keydets to 14-7. Two field goals by Goins pushed the Bulldogs lead to 20-7 at halftime.

Amon-Ra Clay recovered a Jackson fumble, and Ziglar ran in it from the 3-yard line on the next play to make it 20-14. The Bulldogs then forced two fumbles and two interceptions.
