WKU beats Middle Tennessee for 600th win in program history

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) Austin Reed threw for two touchdowns and ran for another to lead Western Kentucky past Middle Tennessee 35-17 on Saturday for the program's 600th victory.

WKU led 14-10 at halftime. Reed found Joshua Simon with a short touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal to take a 28-10 lead late in the third quarter. It moved Simon into a tie for second pace for most TDs by a tight end in program history with 12.

Early in the fourth, Darius Thomas made a leaping interception on a screen pass and raced 42 yards for a touchdown.

Reed was 32-of-49 passing for 278 yards with an interception, and he carried 12 times for 39 yards. Malachi Corley caught 10 passes for 100 yards and a touchdown and Kye Robichaux had a rushing touchdown for Western Kentucky (4-3, 2-1 Conference USA).

Chase Cunningham completed 32 of 51 passes for 228 yards with one touchdown and one interception for Middle Tennessee (3-4, 0-3).
