Carson-Newman cruises to 59-18 win

WALTHAM, Mass. (BP) --The Carson-Newman offense wanted to begin a new streak of 49-point games. The defense and special teams made that job easy.

After seeing its consective 49-point games streak end at eight, the 7th-ranked Carson-Newman Eagles scored 45 unanswered points to roll by Bentley 59-18 Sept. 12.

C-N (2-1) used two interception returns for a touchdown and a kickoff return for a touchdown to keep the pressure on a Falcon offense that struggled to move the football.

The Eagles entered the game trying to put their first loss of the season, a 20-13 setback to North Alabama on Sept. 4, behind then, and it took only one play.

Sophomore Mario Russell stepped in front a pass from Falcons' quarterback John White on the first snap of the game, and returned it 39 yards up the sideline for a touchdown. It was the second interception in as many weeks for Russell.

Bentley would answer with a 12-play, 44-yard drive to get a 37-yard field goal from Tyler McNamara, cutting the lead to 7-3.

From there, C-N found another a different gear on both sides of the ball to put the game out of reach.
