Ford, Hutchinson run for two TDs each in Mocs’ 38-20 win

CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) — Ailym Ford and Preston Hutchinson each ran for a pair of touchdowns and Chattanooga defeated Eastern Illinois 38-20 on Saturday night.

Hutchinson threw for 278 yards, including a 51-yard touchdown to Javin Whatley.

EIU had a 10-7 lead after Jonah O’Brien’s 31-yard scoring toss to Nile Hill in the final minute of the third quarter but Ford’s 4-yard score put the Mocs (2-0), ranked 10th in the FCS coaches poll, in front for good.

Ford’s other TD run of 21 yards made it 27-13 midway through the third quarter. An Andre Southard field goal and Hutchinson’s 14-yard run in the fourth quarter gave the Mocs a cushion.

O’Brien threw for two touchdowns for the Panthers (0-2).
