CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) Damonta Witherspoon ran for 135 yards and a touchdown and Cortezz Jones' 26-yard TD run in the third quarter was the only scoring after halftime as Murray State pulled out a 20-13 victory over Eastern Illinois on Saturday.

Stone Galloway's second field goal of the game came with 7 seconds left before the half and pulled Eastern Illinois even at 13. Jones' game-winning TD run capped a seven-play, 76-yard drive and came on the first possession of the third quarter for the Racers (6-5, 3-3 Ohio Valley Conference). Witherspoon's TD was a 15-yard run with 1:47 left in the second quarter. DJ Williams passed for 59 yards and ran for 83 more for Murray State. Jones finished with 71 yards on 11 carries.
