HAMMOND, La. (AP) Luke Anthony threw three touchdown passes and Billy McCrary had 14 carries for 222 yards and a score to help Abilene Christian beat Southeastern Louisiana 48-27 on Saturday night.
Anthony was 29-of-37 passing for 295 yards and McCrary was the first Abilene Christian player with at least 200 yards rushing since 2014.

Oscar Hernandez kicked field goals of 33 and 32 yards, James scored on a 15-yard run and Anthony hit Kalin Sadler for a 34-yard touchdown as ACU took a 20-10 lead into halftime.
Chason Virgil's 9-yard TD pass to Nih-Jer Jackson pulled Southeastern Louisiana (3-5, 3-3) within 10 going into the fourth quarter, but James scored on a 2-yard run early in the fourth and McCrary added a 51-yard TD run before Anthony's 14-yard pass to Justice capped the scoring with 6:16 remaining.
