LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Jordan Fuller ran for four touchdowns, including a 70-yarder in the fourth quarter, and Holy Cross defeated Bucknell 55-27 on Saturday.

The Crusaders (4-2, 2-0 Patriot League) led 34-14 at the half but Bucknell got as close as 41-27 entering the fourth quarter after Ralph Rucker passed to Eric Weatherly for a 40-yard touchdown.

Fuller then put the game away with a 12-yard run and his 70-yard burst in which he took a handoff up the middle, cut to his left in the secondary and outraced everyone to the end zone. It was the second time this season that he had four rushing touchdowns.
