Recap: FIU vs. Arkansas State

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - David Oku ran for three touchdowns as Arkansas State rolled to a 34-20 victory over Florida International in the Sun Belt Conference play.

Ryan Aplin threw for 223 yards and a touchdown on 15-of-23 passes and also ran for a score for Arkansas State (3-3, 1-1 Sun Belt), which lost its conference opener to Western Kentucky last Saturday.

J.D. McKissic caught five passes for 124 yards and a touchdown, while the Red Wolves' running game totaled 198 yards to come away victorious.

E.J. Hilliard completed 18-of-27 throws for 133 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the Panthers (1-5, 0-2), who have dropped four straight.

The only score in the first quarter came on Jack Griffin's 28-yard field goal, but Arkansas State responded when McKissic got behind the secondary and hauled in a 74-yard touchdown pass less than four minutes into the second.

FIU regained the lead with a 7-play, 62-yard drive that was extended with a successful fake punt and ended in Jacob Younger's 19-yard TD grab along the right sideline.

But a Hilliard interception led to Oku's 1-yard plunge, giving the Red Wolves a 14-10 lead just before halftime.

Arkansas State took control with two touchdowns in the third quarter. The first was a 10-yard jaunt by Aplin that culminated an 11-play, 87-yard march. The second, a 2-yard run by Oku, came with 6:11 remaining after another turnover gave the Red Wolves a short field.

Griffin booted a 31-yard field goal in the final minute of the frame, but Rocky Hayes' 73-yard run on the first play of the fourth set up Oku's 4-yard score.

Darian Mallary cut into the deficit with a 5-yard TD run with 6 1/2 minutes left, but that's as close as it got.

Extra Points: Two wrongs don't make a right for Goodell

The fact that we look to Roger Goodell and the NFL to take the lead on any number of social issues should say more about us as a society than the commissioner or the league he lords over.
