After spotting Charleston Southern a 7-0 lead in the second quarter, Stony Brook stopped making mistakes and exploded for 34 points over a span of 14:22 to take a 34-7 lead midway through the third quarter. That powerful display sent the Seawolves on their way to a dominating 41-21 victory to even their overall record at 4-4 and maintain a tie with Liberty for first place in the Big South with a 3-0 conference record.
Running back Miguel Maysonet set a LaValle Stadium record and tied a school record with four touchdowns. He scord on aruns of 32, 8 and 9 yards and cuaght a 35-yard screen pass from quarterback Michale Coulter. Maysonet finished with 158 yards rushing on 19 carries and 195 total yards.
Seawolves running back Brock Jackolski was equally spectacular, carrying 16 times for 183 yards and one touchdown and breaking kickoff returns of 40 and 28 yards to position SBU to start two other scoring drives.
Next week, SBU travels to Presbyterian and then returns home to face Gardner-Webb before going on the road to Liberty. If the Seawolves win one of the next two, then, the winner of their game with Liberty gets the automatic bid to the FCS playoffs.
