Kennesaw St. dumps Presbyterian 45-10 behind Burks

KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) Chandler Burks had three touchdowns passes in six completions and added 119 yards on 20 carries to lead Kennesaw State to a 45-10 win over Presbyterian on Saturday.

Kennesaw State (8-2, 3-1 Big South) is still alive for a share of the conference title and needs a win next week at Charleston Southern to split the title with Liberty. The Flames have already clinched at least a share of what is their eighth league championship.

The Owls led 7-0 when Chaston Bennett ran 47 yards for a touchdown just 90 seconds into the game. Five minutes later Burks threw a 36-yard TD to Bennett to end an 8-play, 76-yard drive.

Bennett ran for 78 yards, and with the TD reception, has amassed 1,090 total yards of offense and 13 TDs in the last six games.

Ben Cheek was 12-for-20 passing for 111 yards and scored the lone TD for Presbyterian (2-8, 1-4).
