Veasley's 191 yards carry Central Arkansas past SE Louisiana 21-16


CONWAY, Arkansas — Blake Veasley ran 27 times for 191 yards and a touchdown to lead Central Arkansas over Southeastern Louisiana 21-16 on Saturday night.

Veasley capped the game's opening possession with a 1-yard TD run, and Kirk Baugh and Dominique Thomas added TD runs to keep the Bears (5-3, 5-1 Southland Conference) in front.

Julius Maraclin led the Lions (4-4, 3-3) with 118 yards rushing. His 7-yard run pulled SE Louisiana within 21-16 with 9:12 left.

But the Bears' Bobby Watkins intercepted Donovan Isom's pass with 2:48 left and their defense sealed the win by forcing a turnover on downs in the final minute.

Baugh's 10-yard run made it 14-3 before the half and Thomas ran 45 yards to make it 21-9 early in the fourth. Thomas finished with 76 yards on 15 carries.
