Owls Use 12-Players to Rush for Over 500-Yards In a Win Over Tennessee Tech

Cookeville TN – The Kennesaw State Owls traveled north to a rainy Cookeville Tennessee to take on the Tennessee Tech Eagles on Thursday night and brought home a victory with a 49 to 10 win over the Eagles to bring their season record to 1-1 after week 2.

After a long rain delay KSU pounded the Eagles with the Owls running game which totaled 507- yards for 7- touchdowns on the night.  With almost 230-rushing yards by halftime it was clear that with the rain in the air that Owls Coach Brian Bohannon was going to stick with the run.

With the Owls going up by 39-points we were able to see some of the younger Owls who have not seen much time on the field. Daniel David came into the game to spell Chandler Burks after his night of 91-yards rushing with 3-TDs and another 41-yards in the air.  Owls QB Tommy Bryant got a shot to lead the Owls during the 4th quarter where he was efficient and added a completion for 4-yards and a rushing touchdown.

The Owls were able to use 12 different players to rush the ball for a total of seven rushing touchdowns on the night. The 507-Yards on the ground gave the Owls an new rushing record in their short 4-season history.

LeVonte Larry and Tyler Moore led the Owls on defense for a combined 14-tackles and a sack.

The Eagles quarterback Bailey Fisher had a good night in the air by going 19-30 for 179-yards and a TD. He also had 38-yards rushing on 8 carries on the ground.

With the win the Owls move to 1-1 on the season and head home for a 5pm kickoff next Saturday against Alabama State.
