DENTON, Texas (AP) Ryan Aplin threw for 328 yards and two touchdowns, and ran for another score Saturday to lead Arkansas State to a 37-19 win over North Texas.
The Red Wolves (6-3, 4-1 Sun Belt) fell behind 2-0 on the game's first play, when the kickoff was fumbled in the end zone and Arkansas State recovered, giving North Texas a safety. But Aplin hit Julian Jones for a 59-yard touchdown for a 7-2 lead.
Aplin ran for a 5-yard score and connected with Kedric Murry for a 4-yard TD in the second quarter as the Red Wolves built a 30-12 lead by halftime.
It was Arkansas State's fourth straight win and the Red Wolves became bowl eligible with three games remaining.
Derek Thompson had 316 yards passing for North Texas (3-6, 2-3). He threw a TD pass and ran for another score. Darnell Smith had 107 yards receiving for the Mean Green.
It was only a mere three weeks ago that Francesco Molinari closed with a final round 62 en route to a dominant eight-shot victory at the 2018 Quicken Loans National.
On Sunday, his eight-under total was good enough for a two-shot win over Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele.
The 35-year-old played his final round alongside Tiger Woods, who shot a 5-under-par 66 in Saturday's third round that left him at 5 under through 54 holes and four shots back of the leaders. His 66 was his first weekend round in the 60s in the Open since 2007.
The 14-time major winner had to settle for a closing round of 71 on Sunday. It was his first Open since missing the cut at St. Andrews in 2015.
Molinari continues to be one of the world's hottest golfers, notching his third win in the last five starts.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Outfielder Brian Goodwin has been acquired by the Kansas City Royals from the Washington Nationals for minor league pitcher Jacob Condra-Bogan.
The 27-year-old Goodwin hit .200 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 48 games for the Nationals this season. He bruised his left wrist diving for a ball and did not play from April 15 until May 15, when he had two at-bats. He went back on the disabled list, returned June 1 and is hitting .171 (7 for 41) since.
Condra-Bogan, 23, went 1-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 16 relief outings with Lexington of the South Atlantic League and one appearance with Wilmington of the Carolina League, also Class A.
The trade was announced Sunday.
