Raiders fall in Florida

Game Ticker | box score

MIAMI(AP) Paul McCall threw for one touchdown and ran for another to lead Florida International to a 31-21 win against Middle Tennessee on Saturday night.

McCall completed 13 of 29 passes for 223 yards with one touchdown and one interception, running for another score and 53 yards on nine carries for the Golden Panthers (3-3, 2-0 Sun Belt Conference).

Phillip Tanner rushed 18 times for 86 yards and two touchdowns for the Blue Raiders (2-4, 1-3).

Florida International reached the .500 mark for the first time since 2002, and tied a school record with its third consecutive win.

McCall's 9-yard touchdown run gave Florida International a 7-3 lead with 4:12 before the half, and Dustin Rivest's 20-yard field goal extended the lead to 10-3 at halftime.

Anthony Gaitor opened the second half with a 27-yard interception return for the Golden Panthers, and A'mod Ned's 1-yard touchdown run gave Florida International a 24-6 lead at the 3:29 mark in the third quarter. Tanner's 3-yard touchdown run cut Middle Tennessee's deficit to 11 points at the end of the third.

But McCall hit T.Y. Hilton on a 63-yard touchdown pass to make it 31-13, and Tanner's 3-yard run with 4:41 left wouldn't be enough for the Blue Raiders.
