MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Ryan Aplin threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as Arkansas State defeated Middle Tennessee 45-19 on Saturday.

Aplin was 25 of 57 passing for 294 yards and ran for 41 more on 15 carries.

Aplin's 21-yard TD pass to Anthony Kincy started a 17-point scoring streak for the Red Wolves (9-2, 7-0 Sun Belt Conference).

Frankie Jackson scored on an 8-yard run and Brian Davis kicked a 24-yard field goal to give Arkansas State a 25-2 lead with 5:54 left in the second quarter.

Middle Tennessee (2-8, 1-5) made it 25-19 on Jeff Murphy's 12-yard pass to Sancho McDonald, but Jackson (2 yards), Jermaine Robertson (30 yards) and Aplin (2 yards) all ran in touchdowns for Arkansas State, to seal it.

The Red Wolves finished with 536 yards of total offense, and held the ball for almost 10 more minutes than the Blue Raiders (34:31-25:29).
