Central Arkansas runs past Nicholls State 42-13

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Brent Grimes rushed for 155 yards and three touchdowns and Robbie Park threw two TD passes as Central Arkansas beat Nicholls State 42-13 Saturday.

Grimes had scoring runs of 36, 18 and 42 yards for the Bears (5-2, 2-1 Southland), who rebounded from a last-second, 3-point loss to Stephen F. Austin last week.

Anton Robinson, who touched the ball only twice, scored both touchdowns for the Colonels (1-6, 0-3). The first came on a 41-yard pass from LaQuint Caston and the second on a 42-yard run.

Park was 12 of 20 for 245 yards. He connected with James Lovett on a 42-yard TD pass and with Dominique Croom on a 35-yard scoring strike, both coming in the second quarter as Central Arkansas built a 35-6 halftime lead.
