BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - Kierre Crossley had 136 yards from scrimmage and a TD run on Saturday night as Central Arkansas won its eighth straight and stayed undefeated in Southland Conference play with a 42-14 win over Lamar.
Crossley finished with 97 yards on the ground, Carlos Blackman added 58 yards and a score, and Cedric Battle had 55 yards and two TD runs. Hayden Hildebrand passed for 190 yards and two TDs with Brandon Myers catching three for 85 yards and a touchdown. The Bears (8-1, 7-0) are alone in first place in the conference standings.
The Cardinals (1-8, 0-7) capitalized on Central Arkansas' only turnover - a first-quarter interception - when Cole Starnes scored on a 2-yard run to tie it at 7. The Bears scored the next 35 points before Blake McKenzie's pass to Case Robinson pulled Lamar to 42-14 with 10:56 left in the game.
Lamar lost its seventh straight.
