Chisholm ran for 205 yards and two touchdowns in Dayton’s 49-27 victory over Morehead State on Saturday. It was his third straight 100-yard rushing performance.

He also caught two passes for 54 yards, finishing with 259 all-purpose yards against the Eagles.

Chisholm had a 44-yard run in the second quarter that set up a touchdown that put UD ahead for good. His second touchdown extended the lead to 28-17 and helped the Flyers put the game away.

He has 960 rushing yards for the season, 40 shy of 1,000. Chisholm is looking to become to the first Dayton Flyer to accomplish that three straight years.
