A second fumbled punt led to an Eastern Kentucky touchdown, but the Herd took a 20-6 lead into intermission.
Scott was just 2 of 6 passing for EKU (1-1) and was picked off three times.
Freshmen Lopini Katoa ran for two touchdowns, Skyler Southam kicked three field goals and No. 25 BYU took advantage of McNeese State's second-quarter mistakes in a 30-3 victory Saturday.
QB J'Mar Smith squeezes it between two defenders and connects with WR Adrian Hardy in the end zone, shrinking LSU's lead to 24-21.
Florida WR Tyrie Cleveland goes up and snags the ball for the 38-yard TD.
