JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. (BP)—-The No. 20-ranked Carson-Newman football team cruised to a 56-7 win over visiting Fayetteville State Sept. 8.

"It was very pleasing," head coach Ken Sparks said. "I was excited about how they responded. We just have to keep it going. We're glad to be where we are right now."

It was a banner day for the Eagles defense, which recorded five sacks and seven tackles for a loss. Carson-Newman also picked off two passes and held Fayetteville State to just 165 total yards.

On offense, the Eagles were nearly unstoppable. C-N piled up 478 total yards, with 417 coming on the ground. Carson-Newman was 7-of-9 on third down conversions and 5-for-5 in the red zone. The Eagles' first punt came with 2:31 left in the fourth quarter.

"They were pumped up and ready to play," Sparks said. "It's been a good week for us. You don't just show up and play like that. It's something that comes from preparation and working to improve."

The Eagles improved to 2-0 with the win.
