Citadel crushes Elon, 35-10

ELON, N.C. -- Ben Dupree threw for one touchdown and rushed for three more to lead Citadel in a crushing 35-10 victory over Elon on Saturday.

Dupree threw only six times for four completions and 166 yards. But his 65-yard touchdown pass to fullback Darien Robinson early in the third quarter would mark the beginning of the end for Elon as it gave the Bulldogs (4-6, 4-4 Southern Conference) a 21-10 lead from which they would never look back. The Citadel scored a total of four unanswered touchdowns and its offensive total of 424 yards was nearly twice that of Elon (2-8, 1-5).

Freshman Citadel running back Tyler Renew chipped in with 82 yards on eight carries and a touchdown.

The Bulldog defense forced three Elon turnovers, intercepting Mike Quinn once in the first quarter and, crucially, twice on back-to-back possessions in the second half.
