JACKSONVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- Matt Hardin passed for 218 yards with two touchdowns and Clay Green rushed for 110 yards and two more touchdowns to lead Jacksonville State to a 55-7 win over Samford Saturday.

It was the biggest margin of victory in the series and the seventh straight win by Jacksonville State (6-4, 5-2 Ohio Valley Conference) over Samford (3-8, 1-8).

Jacksonville State set the tone after Craig Agee intercepted Dontae Williams' first pass of the game and returned it 17 yards to give the Gamecocks a 7-0 lead.

Jax State added two more touchdowns, a 42-yard pass from Hardin to James Wilkerson and a 7-yard pass to Josh Moten as the Gamecocks built a 21-0 lead after the first.

Gavin Hallford kicked a 32-yard field goal with 6:37 left to push the JSU lead to 24-0, but Samford answered with its lone touchdown on a 41-yard run by Marcus Rice to cut the lead to 24-7. Hallford added a 29-yard field goal to end the half.

Clay Green scored two touchdowns during the third quarter to build a 41-7 lead entering the fourth quarter. Shawn Green scored on a two-yard run and Ty Griswold broke free for a 38-yard run in the fourth quarter for the final score.
