Allen Smith had 113 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries, one going 70 yards for a score on fourth-and-1, which put the Bears on top 28-17 at halftime.
Perry, who was 24 of 39 for 300 yards, had 334 yards of total offense, which pushed him pass the 3,196 yards piled up by head coach James Perry, who is EJ’s uncle.
