MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Terelle West set career highs with 26 carries, 170 yards and two touchdowns to help Middle Tennessee become bowl eligible with a 41-10 win over Old Dominion on Saturday.
The sophomore running back also had three catches for 25 yards for the Blue Raiders (6-6, 4-4 Conference USA). It was only the third game for West with more than 10 carries. He was originally favored to start at the beginning of the season but missed time due to injuries.
The Monarchs (5-7, 3-5) took the early lead on Nick Rice's 26-yard field goal in the first quarter. But Middle Tennessee took over from there, scoring the next 41 points before Old Dominion notched its only touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
Brent Stockstill was 21 of 30 for 266 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions for the Blue Raiders.
Ray Lawry ran 14 times for 97 yards for Old Dominion.
