murray racers logo 300MURRAY, Ky. (9/9/13) – Murray State found the offense early and often in the first half as the Racers scored 41 points in the first quarter en route to a 83-14 victory over Campbellsville in the 2013 home opener Saturday evening at Stewart Stadium.
 
The Racers (1-1) didn’t waste any time in making a big play as Brandon Wicks intercepted the first pass of the game and returned it 30 yards to the 35-yard line. Duane Brady carried the ball four times on the drive, including a one-yard touchdown run to give the Racers a 7-0 advantage.
 
After a few possessions without any scoring, the Racers used a quick two-play drive midway through the quarter to strike again. After a six-yard run by Jaamal Berry, Maikhail Miller found Walter Powell for a 30-yard touchdown. On the ensuing CU possession, Darrell Smith intercepted the ball and returned it 17 yards for the touchdown.
 
The Racers offense put together another quick scoring drive as Miller found Jeremy Harness on a 41-yard touchdown with just under six points left in the quarter.
 
The running back duo of Berry and Brady closed out the scoring in the first quarter as Berry scored from 24 yards out, and Berry went in from five yards out.
 
Brady would add two more touchdown runs in the second quarter, including a career-long 54-yard touchdown. Powell also found the end zone a second time in the quarter as Miller found him on a nine-yard touchdown.
 
The Tigers (0-2) would put together a pair of scoring drives late in the second quarter.
 
MSU did all the scoring in the second half as the Racers put up 21 points in the third quarter. Junior Parks Frazier found Jesse Blackburn on a fourth-down play for a 28-yard touchdown.
 
Redshirt freshman Marcus Holliday took over the game at that point and rushed for 132 yards and a pair of scores on 18 carries. Both of his touchdowns came in the third quarter as he scored from 18 yards out and then again on a nine-yard run.
 
There was no scoring in the fourth quarter as the officials decided to set the clock at six minutes.
 
The 83 points scored by the Racers is a modern-day scoring record, breaking the old mark of 72 set against Missouri State in 2010.
 
Brady also had a career day as he rushed for 85 yards and four touchdowns on just 10 carries. Berry carried the ball just three times for 28 yards and a score.
 
Chavez Sims was a monster on defense as he had six solo tackles, including a school record four sacks and a forced fumble.
 
Miller finished the day by going 17-for-21 for 240 yards and three touchdowns.
 
The Racers return to The Track on Sept. 14 as they welcome Missouri State for Family Weekend. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
