CHARLESTON (WCIA) — The Eastern Illinois offensive woes were on full display in the 106th Mid-America Classic Saturday afternoon, as No. 14 Illinois State ran away with a 44-13 win at O’Brien Field.

The Panthers (1-2) only managed 117 total yards against the Redbirds’ (2-0) defense, including just 14 net rushing yards. ISU scored in every quarter and took a 27-6 lead into halftime.

Eastern opens up Ohio Valley Conference play next weekend hosting Southeast Missouri State at 6 p.m.
