TROY, Ala. (AP) — Kimani Vidal ran for 245 yards and three touchdowns and Troy celebrated homecoming with a 37-3 rout of Arkansas State on Saturday.
Vidal had two short TD runs as the Trojans (4-2, 2-1 Sun Belt Conference) took a 14-0 lead in the second quarter. He capped his day with an explosive 69-yard run after taking a direct snap for a 37-0 lead in the fourth quarter.
