Hughes throws for 299 yards as Jacksonville pounds Warner Southern 69-16

Steven Hughes completed 15 of 20 passes for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns as Jacksonville defeated Warner Southern 69-16 on Saturday.

Hughes began the Dolphins' offensive onslaught only a minute into the first quarter with a 58-yard pass to wide receiver Yeovanti Williams for the first of nine Jacksonville touchdowns.

The Dolphins (2-2) went on to score 55 unanswered points before Warner finally got on the board late in the third quarter. Ulysses Bryant rushed 11 times for 139 yards and two touchdowns.

Jacksonville blasted Morehead State 69-19 last week in the team's first home game of the season, compiling 719 yards of total offense and setting a home field record for most points scored.

The Royals drop to 0-4 in their inaugural season and have been outscored 184-19 in losses to Stetson, Webber International, Mercer and Jacksonville.
