CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) _ Georgia Southern rode the legs of senior quarterback Chaz Williams who rushed for 133 yards and a career-high four touchdowns to lead the Eagles past The Citadel 42-to-7 in Southern Conference football action today.

With the victory, Georgia Southern (7-1, 6-0 SoCon) clinched a share of the Southern Conference title, its seventh in eight years. The Eagles turned it on late in the first quarter and never looked back as they jumped out to a 28-to-0 halftime lead.
