CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Miguel Maysonet rushed for four touchdowns and broke the Stony Brook record for career rushing TDs Saturday as the Seawolves beat Charleston Southern, 50-31, for their sixth straight victory.
Maysonet, who has 25 rushing touchdowns in his two years with the Seawolves, broke Bobby Kane's record of 23 TDs set in 1996. Maysonet gained 182 yards on 17 carries.
Brock Jackolski rushed for 174 yards on 20 carries and scored two touchdowns, including a 55-yarder. "Brock and Miguel complement each other so well,'' coach Chuck Priore said. "They are very special to this team. What makes them so great is that they have no hidden agenda.''
Maysonet has 1,178 yards and 13 touchdowns and Jackolski has 1,001 yards and eight touchdowns this season.
Stony Brook (6-3, 4-0 Big South) gained 355 yards on 43 carries and has scored at least 42 points in each of its last five games. The Seawolves kept pace with Liberty (7-3, 5-0) -- which beat VMI, 37-31 -- and can tie for first by beating Gardner-Webb next Saturday. SBU will host Liberty Nov. 19.
Charleston Southern's Richard Mounce threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns, with Nathan Perera catching 10 passes for 232 yards and two TDs, but SBU allowed minus-7 rushing yards on 32 carries. "That was on point today,'' Priore said. "We forced them into a lot of passing situations, which they were good at today. But I'm proud of our team. We controlled the game the whole time.''
