(Edmond-AP) -- Central Oklahoma lost 57-to-35 to Eastern New Mexico Saturday in a Lone Star Conference showdown.

The Bronchos were down 28-to-15 at the half but rallied to take a 35-to-28 lead late in the third quarter on a school-record 90-yard touchdown pass from Brett Manning to Dee Dee Carter.

But the Greyhounds scored on an 11-yard TD run by Aaron Dunnam. The extra point snap was bobbled, but Steven Hinson managed to dive in for two points to make it 36-to-35 in favor of Eastern New Mexico. The Greyhounds then scored three times in the final eight-and-a-half minutes to put the game away.
