CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) — Kare Lyles threw for four touchdowns — two each to Landon Lenoir and Avante Cox — and Southern Illinois put away Missouri State early in a 37-14 win on Saturday.

Lenoir had 124 yards receiving on nine receptions and Javon Williams Jr. had 113 yards rushing on 10 carries.

The Salukis (6-4, 4-2 Missouri Valley) scored on five of six possessions in the first half — four produced touchdowns — and they built a 30-0 lead by intermission. Southern Illinois piled up 555 yards of offense and 26 first downs, which helped offset three turnovers.

Southern Illinois now has won four straight following a three-game losing streak.

Peyton Huslig threw for 193 yards and two touchdowns for Missouri State (1-8, 1-5).

Following 4-2 start last year, the Bears now have lost 13 of their last 14 games.
