GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) Tyler Huff threw for 215 yards and a touchdown and Ian Williams made all three of his field goals including a 52-yarder and FCS No. 3 Furman beat East Tennessee State 16-8 on Saturday.

Williams made field goals of 23 and 52 in the first quarter and from 32 yards with 3:22 left in the third for a 9-0 lead. Just before the third ended, Huff threw a 22-yard score to Joshua Harris for a 16-0 advantage.

East Tennessee State scored when Ton’Quez Ball ran a blocked punt into the end zone from 8 yards out. The two-point conversion reduced the Buccaneers' deficit in half.

But as it had done all game, the Paladins' (7-1, 5-0 Southern Conference) defense forced East Tennessee State (2-6, 1-4) into a punt and turnover on downs and limited the Bucs to 24 yards offense on its last two series.

William Riddle threw for 111 yards for ETSU and Furman's defense intercepted him three times.
