CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Dominique Allen ran for two touchdowns, passed for a third, and Isiaha Smith ran for three more Saturday in The Citadel's 69-0 rout of Davidson.

Tevin Floyd returned an interception 28 yards for a score, Dondray Copeland's interception set up Allen's 17-yard TD strike to Jorian Jordan, and Marial Cooper's pick led to Allen's 1-yard TD run.
