        The Mocs stretched their lead to 14-3 in the second quarter when tailback Eldra Buckley ran 11 yards for a touchdown. Buckley rushed 28 times for 187 yards, topping the 1,000-yard mark for the second straight season.
        The Phoenix (4-4, 2-3) closed within 14-10 at the half on an 11-yard touchdown run by Reggie Hall.
        Elon used a little trickery to take a 20-14 lead midway through the third quarter, when Hudgins turned a reverse into a 26-yard scoring toss to a wide-open Johnie Blackwell.
