Charleston Southern tops Presbyterian 41-7

CHARLESTON, SC (AP/WCSC) - London Johnson passed for 104 yards and a touchdown and ran for 67 yards and a score to help Charleston Southern beat Presbyterian 41-7 on Saturday night.

The Buccaneers (3-3, 1-0 Big South Conference) surrendered a touchdown on Presbyterian's first possession before holding the Blue Hose (2-4, 0-2) scoreless the rest of the way while scoring the final 41 points.

Johnson's 24-yard TD pass to Taz Lindsey made it 7-all with 10:59 left in the second quarter and Charleston Southern took the lead for good on the next play from scrimmage with Jonathan Slaton's pick-6.

Garris Schwarting recovered a muffed punt snap and returned it for a touchdown early in the third quarter, sparking a four-turnover quarter for the Buccaneers.

Terrence Wilson's 1-yard run made it 31-7 in the middle of the third and Johnson's 1-yard keeper capped the scoring on the first play of the fourth quarter.
