DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Isidore Jackson scored three rushing touchdowns, Anthony Jordan added two scores and Bethune-Cookman defeated Fort Valley State 58-30 on Saturday.

Jackson, who ran for a career-high 150 yards on 19 carries, scored on runs of 13 and 8 yards in the second quarter and added a 20-yard rushing score in the second half. His 13-yard run gave Bethune-Cookman a 27-7 lead with 13:15 left in the second. With the win, Bethune-Cookman (3-3) ended a two-game losing streak.

Both of Jordan’s touchdowns runs came from 1-yard away. Fort Valley State (1-6), a team from Division II, extended its losing streak to two games. Bethune-Cookman totaled 648 yards of total offense, including 418 on the ground. Fort Valley State netted 422 yards — 321 of that through the air.

Cameron Pearson led Fort Valley State with 321 yards passing and four touchdowns.  Junior wide receiver Christopher Slaughter caught 8 passes for 201 yards including a 39 yard touchdown reception between two BCU defenders with 11:47 remaining in the contest.  The Fort Valley offense registered 5 pass plays in excess of 30 yards and posted 422 yards of total offense on the afternoon.

David Blackwell received the starting nod at quarterback for BCU.  The sophomore from Ft Lauderdale’s Cardinal Gibbons high school accounted for 222 yards passing (8 for 14 with 1 td) and 92 yards rushing becoming the first BCU quarterback to account for over 300 yards of offense this season.

Jackie Wilson entered the contest in the 4th quarter after Blackwell dislocated his right thumb.  Sophomore quarterback Jawad Yatim saw his first action of the season, however, he did not attempt a pass.  Maryland transfer Jamarr Robinson dressed for the contest but did not participate.  Brian Jenkins stated it was a coaches decision to withhold Robinson from the contest.
