DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) — Wesley Dugger scored three of Davidson's 13 touchdowns, helping the Wildcats beat Division III Guilford 91-61 on Thursday night in a game moved up two days because of the threat of Hurricane Florence.
Davidson (3-0) set program records in the first half with 57 points and 524 yards and added two more in the second half for points and total yards (964). Eli Turner Jr.'s first career touchdown broke the Wildcats' record for rushing scores in a game with eight midway through the third quarter.
