JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Wesley Dugger scored five rushing touchdowns, all within 5 yards or less, and Davidson defeated Jacksonville 49-19 on Saturday.

Dugger now owns the program record for rushing touchdowns with 37 and passed John Leverett and Ray Sinclair. Dugger's 193 rushing yards gives him 2,940 for his career and moved him into third place all time ahead of Eric Ferguson. Leverett (3,165) and Sinclair (3,085) are within the junior's reach.

His 193 rushing yards, on 22 carries, was just shy of Jacksonville's 224 yards of total offense. The Wildcats ran 73 running plays for 521 yards and attempted only six passes, completing two.

Dugger's first three scores — on runs of 1, 3 and 3 yards — gave the Wildcats a 21-0 lead 21 minutes into the game. His fourth touchdown gave Davidson (5-2, 2-1 Pioneer) a 28-3 lead in the third quarter and the Wildcats added three more scores in the fourth.

Calvin Turner Jr. threw for 143 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown to Ish Cortes for the Dolphins (2-5, 0-3). BJ Byrd ran 20 yards for their other touchdown.
