The Youngstown State Penguins pulled away from the UNI Panthers on Saturday in eastern Ohio, dropping UNI’s record to .500 and jeopardizing the Panthers hopes to reach the 2018 FCS playoffs.
Youngstown jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, on the way to a 31-10 result.
A four-yard jump ball touchdown to Briley Moore in the corner of the end zone to cut the deficit to 14-7 at the half.
However, Youngstown scored a pair of touchdowns in the third quarter and two Panther chances to respond were stalled because of fumbled snaps inside of the Youngstown five-yard line.
Marcus Weymiller led the offense with 19 carries for 89 yards.
Quarterback Eli Dunne was 6-17 for just 47 yards on a windy day when both pass offenses struggles.
The Panthers’ 166 total yards were the lowest count of the season.
