MONROE, La. (AP) Jyruss Edwards made the most of his eight carries, rushing for 123 yards and a score to help Louisiana-Monroe to a dominating 48-10 win over Grambling State on Saturday night.

The Warhawks got on the board right away when Cortney Davis returned the opening kickoff 89 yards for a touchdown.

Grambling State (0-2) responded with a 17-yard touchdown pass from D.J. Williams to Anthony McGhee to tie the game before the Louisiana-Monroe offense took over.

Kolton Browning completed three touchdown passes and Edwards' touchdown run helped the Warhawks to a 35-7 halftime advantage.

DeVontae McNeal ran for a 34-yard touchdown and logged 94 yards on nine attempts to compliment Edwards' effort. Louisiana-Monroe ran for 367 yards.
