Harris, Jackson lead #11 MSU over Greyhounds 51-28

Midwestern State's Chauncey Harris and Keidrick Jackson combined for 280 rushing yards to lead the 11th-ranked Mustangs to a 51-28 win over Eastern New Mexico Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

MSU has won seven consecutive games since suffering a season opening setback at Tarleton State. The win sets up a showdown with West Texas A&M, which won its eighth straight game by a score of 52-28 Friday night at West Georgia.

Harris rushed for a career-high 155 yards on 15 carries including a pair of touchdown runs (21, 20) while Jackson delivered his fifth 100-yard performance of the season running for 125 yards on 16 carries with a pair of touchdowns.

The game was nip-and-tuck throughout the opening three quarter before the Mustangs' defense force consecutive three-and-outs and ENMU turned the ball over on downs in three series after the Greyhounds pulled to within 28-21 on a 25-yard strike from Wesley Wood to Dylan Metzger with 3:24 to play in the third quarter.

The defensive surge allowed MSU to score the next 23 points of the contest as the Mustangs substituted freely over the final quarter of the game.

Backup quarterback Jake Glover led the Mustangs on a five-play 67-yard drive culminated by Harris' first scoring run of the game -- a 21-yard burst around left end to give the Mustangs a 35-21 lead.

Greg Saladino tacked on a 38-yard field on the next possession before Harris finished off a four-play, 57-yard drive with 8:07 to play in the fourth quarter to give MSU a commanding 45-21 edge.

Third-string quarterback Shavodrick Beaver added another 42-yard on his lone carry of the game before Eastern New Mexico scored on the final offensive play of the game.

MSU quarterback Brandon Kelsey completed 10-of-13 passes for 120 yards with two touchdowns, while rushing for 16 yards on eight carries.

Senior wide receiver Jared Freeman had four receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown, while sophomore tight end Mark Strange made three catches for 65 yards.

Wood completed 11-of-18 passes for 181 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 81 yards on 26 carries.

The Mustangs produced their fourth 500-yard total offense performance of the season including 350 on the ground and 166 through the air.
