JONESBORO, Ark. — Darrynton Evans ran for 115 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries to help Appalachian State beat Arkansas State 35-9 on Tuesday night.

The Mountaineers (4-1, 2-0 Sun Belt Conference) took the lead for good at 14-9 on Zac Thomas' 25-yard back-shoulder pass to Corey Sutton with 2:57 left in the second quarter.

Tae Hayes intercepted Justice Hansen's pass three plays later, and his 19-yard return set up the Mountaineers with a first-and-goal from the 3. Evans' 1-yard TD run made it 21-9 with 45 seconds left in the half.

Jalin Moore got the Mountaineers on the scoreboard with a 27-yard TD run early in the second quarter. He suffered an injury to his right ankle while being tackled as he reached for the end zone, and was carted off the field.

Blake Grupe made all three of his field-goal attempts, including a career-long 47-yarder that gave the Red Wolves (3-3, 0-2) a 6-0 lead.
