BOONE, N.C. (AP) — Chase Brice threw two touchdown passes and Jalen Virgil returned a kick 97 yards for a touchdown as Appalachian State closed out its regular season with a 27-3 win over Georgia Southern Saturday.

Appalachian State (10-2, 7-1) clinched the Sun Belt’s East title with a win over Troy last week and advances to face Louisiana-Lafayette for the conference championship.

The Mountaineers’ lone conference loss was at ULL, 41-13, on Oct. 12.

Brice found Malik Williams with a 36-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and Chandler Staton kicked a 40-yard field goal to stake the Mountaineers to a 10-0 lead. Britton Williams kicked a 38-yard field goal to put the Eagles on the board in the final minute of the first half, but Virgil took the kick back for the score to make it 17-3 at intermission.

Brice fired a 68-yard touchdown pass to Thomas Hennigan to start the fourth and Staton capped the scoring with a 36-yard field goal.

Brice finished 12 of 24 for 235 yards and did not turn the ball over. Hennigan had three catches for 111 yards.

Georgia Southern (3-9, 2-6) managed just 107 yards passing and 87 on the ground.

Violence erupts at rally in Pakistans port city, killing 1

KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) — Police in Pakistan’s largest city of Karachi clashed overnight with activists demanding the repeal of a law to limit powers of local mayors, killing one, officials said Thursday.

The violence erupted when police swung batons and fired tear gas to prevent rallygoers from marching towards government offices in the southern port city, drawing nationwide condemnation across the political spectrum.

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement, or MQM, told reporters that party member Mohammad Aslam died at a hospital after being injured in the ensuing crush with police. Women and children were also among the dozens of injured.

MQM mainly represents ethnic Mohajirs, who fled to Pakistan from India during 1947′s partition, and it dominates politics in Karachi, the capital of southern Sindh province. It is an ally in the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Thousands are expected to attend the activist’s funeral on Thursday, and the MQM has called for another day of protests.
