MURRAY, Ky. -- Isaiah Johnson rushed for 236 yards, Matt Severino kicked two field goals in overtime and Terrell Greer ended the game with a blocked field goal as Eastern Illinois defeated Murray State 27-24 in double overtime on Saturday.
Eastern Illinois (5-2, 3-1 Ohio Valley Conference) survived four turnovers, including three interceptions thrown by Bud Martin (18-30 for 192 yards) and rallied to a fourth straight win -- each decided by a field goal or less.
Murray State (2-5, 1-3) scored two touchdowns in the final 10 minutes tying the game at 21, then survived a Severino field goal attempt in the final minute.
The Racers opened the extra period with a Gabriel Vicente field goal, but Severino booted a pair for Eastern Illinois. Greer, a 5-foot-10 freshman lineman, stepped through the line and blocked Vicente to end the game.
