CARBONDALE, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Malcolm Agnew ran for two long touchdowns and caught a pass for another to lead Southern Illinois over Taylor 45-0 on Thursday night in a season opener.

Agnew scored the Salukis' first two touchdowns on runs of 63 and 45 yards in the first quarter when Southern Illinois had a 228-40 edge in yards on its way to a total of 546. Agnew finished with 145 yards rushing on seven carries and added 62 yards receiving on a screen pass from Mark Iannotti for a second-quarter score.

Iannotti, a transfer from Eastern Michigan, also threw 10 yards to MyCole Pruitt for Iannotti's first collegiate touchdown pass. Iannotti was 11 of 16 for 181 yards passing, including an interception.

Southern Illinois, which tied for second last season in the Missouri Valley Football Conference, returns nine starters on defense and it showed against the NAIA Trojans, who had just 141 yards offense.
