Georgia Southern bowl-eligible after 48-31 victory

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) Logan Wright and Wesley Kennedy III combined for 233 yards rushing and Georgia Southern defeated New Mexico State 48-31 on Saturday to win its fourth straight game and become bowl-eligible.

The Eagles (6-1) trailed 14-3 in the first quarter when 15- and 8-yard scoring runs by Kennedy began a streak of six touchdowns on six possessions for a 45-17 lead with 6:24 left in a third quarter that included 2- and 13-yard scores by Wright.

Wright finished with 136 yards on 17 carries for his first career 100-yard day. Kennedy finished with 97 yards as the Eagles piled up 389 yards on the ground.

The Eagles had three takeaways, extending their streak in that department to 10 straight games. The victory was the first nonconference road win as a member of the FBS, which the Eagles joined in 2014.

Jason Huntley had a 9-yard touchdown run and a pair of 1-yard scores for the Aggies (2-6).
