JONESBORO, Ark. -- Ryan Aplin broke his own Arkansas State record for passing touchdowns in a season and the Red Wolves captured their second straight Sun Belt Conference championship with a 45-0 victory over Middle Tennessee on Saturday.
Aplin completed 19 of 21 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns -- giving him 22 TDs to break the mark of 21 he set last season.
Arkansas State (9-3, 7-1) and Middle Tennessee (8-4, 6-2) came into the game tied for first place in the conference, but this quickly turned into a mismatch as Aplin threw two TD passes and also rushed for a 4-yard score en route to a 35-0 halftime lead.
David Oku rushed for 102 yards and a TD for the Red Wolves, giving him 1,024 yards for the season. Arkansas State, which won its seventh straight, had 512 yards of offense to just 203 for the Blue Raiders.
