CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) -- Kory Faulkner threw for 384 yards and three touchdown passes, both career highs, Saturday night to lead Southern Illinois to a 35-14 win over Southeast Missouri.

Faulkner, a junior, connected with David Lewis, MyCole Pruitt and LaSteven McKinney for touchdowns. Mika'il McCall ran for 81 yards and two scores for the Salukis, who led 21-0 at halftime, scoring the final TD of the half after a 13-play, 99-yard drive.
