ELON, N.C. -- Kevin Ellison rushed for 163 yards on 14 carries to lead Georgia Southern to a 38-20 victory over Elon Saturday.

The Eagles extended that to 17-6 at the half on an Irving Huggins score, from 2 yards out, and a Koo Younghoe field goal. Huggins had three touchdowns and 67 yards rushing.
The Eagles stretched their lead to 31-6 late in the third.
