FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Jeff Van Camp threw three touchdown passes to lead Florida Atlantic over Arkansas State 35-18 on Saturday.

Alfred Morris rushed for two scores and caught a touchdown pass for the Owls (3-6, 3-2 Sun Belt Conference), who won their first home game of the season.

Van Camp was 18 for 27 for 242 yards in his second start at quarterback this season, replacing the injured Rusty Smith. Morris ran for 117 yards, his fourth 100-yard game of the year.

Redshirt freshman Ryan Aplin, making his first start at quarterback, was 20 for 27 for 168 yards and one touchdown for Arkansas State (2-7, 1-4), which lost its third straight game and seventh of its past eight.

Florida Atlantic took a 14-9 lead on Morris's 7-yard run in the third.

The Red Wolves took their only lead at 9-7 after a 17-play, 92-yard drive was capped by a 22-yard field goal by Josh Arauco.
