GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) – Triston Luke ran for two touchdowns and Furman beat South Carolina State 17-3 on Saturday night.
Luke finished with 75 yards on 22 carries. Reese Hannon threw for 87 yards as the Paladins (3-2) amassed just 221 yards of total offense.

South Carolina State’s Tyler Scandrett kicked a 24-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter before Luke scored again on an 8-yard run midway through the fourth quarter.
Caleb York threw for 192 yards for the Bulldogs.
