DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) — Tucker Yinger ran for 135 yards and two touchdowns, and Dayton scored 27 third-quarter points to pull away with a 48-22 victory over Davidson on Saturday.

Yinger ran for a 71-yard touchdown early in the second half. Dayton then forced turnovers on Davidson’s next two series. Jack Crain picked off a Tyler Phelps pass and returned it 34 yards into the end zone. Crain also forced a Phelps’ fumble and recovered the ball. Kaparos scored on a 7-yard run three plays later, and his 1-yarder capped the third-quarter surge.
It was Yinger’s sixth 100-yard game this season.
Phelps ran for a 44-yard score and threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to lead Davidson.
