Terrell Watson rushed for 175 yards and three touchdowns to lead Azusa Pacific to a 38-28 win over Western Oregon Saturday night at Citrus College.

Watson scored on runs of 36, 15 and 19 yards, all of them coming in the second half.

The Cougars led 10-0 after one and maintained that ten point lead the rest of the way. The closest Western Oregon got was 10-7 in the early in the second quarter but APU responded by scoring the next two touchdowns and was never really threatened.

The running attack wasn’t the only thing clicking for the Cougars.

Dasmen Stewart completed 18 of 31 for 196 yards and a touchdown to balance out the attack. Azusa Pacific had 393 yards overall.

With victory Azusa Pacific improved to 7-2 overall and remained in control of the GNAC (Great Northwest Athletic Conference) at 7-1. Western Oregon fell to 5-4 and 5-3 overall.
