YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP)   Tevin McCaster ran for 181 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries and Youngstown State piled up 284 yards on the ground to roll past Missouri State 38-10 in a regular-season finale on Saturday.

Joe Alessi scored on a 34-yard run in the second quarter and Ricky Davis capped the scoring with a 10-yard TD run in the final period. The Penguins led 10-0 after one quarter on Zak Kennedy's 30-yard field goal and Samuel St. Surin's fumble recovery in the end zone on a botched punt attempt. It was 24-0 by halftime.
