Vincent Webb ran for 109 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries Saturday to lead Eastern Illinois past visiting Eastern Kentucky 53-22, lifting the Panthers to first place in the Ohio Valley Conference.
Travorus Bess and Mike Donato also ran for two touchdowns each for the Panthers, who gained 281 yards rushing, compared to Eastern Kentucky's 54.
After just 5 minutes had passed in the first quarter, Eastern Illinois (4-2, 3-0 OVC) had a 21-0 lead, thanks in part to a pair of defensive touchdowns.
Eastern Kentucky (3-4, 3-1) did its damage in the air. Quarterback Josh Greco completed 39 of 71 passes, with three touchdowns and three interceptions.
Eastern Illinois is the only OVC team without a conference loss. Eastern Kentucky fell into a second-place tie with two-time defending champion Jacksonville State.
The Gamecocks (3-4, 3-1) pinned the first conference loss on Tennessee-Martin (4-2, 2-1) with a 37-17 victory.
