CHARLOTTE, N.C. — N'Kosi Perry set up three touchdowns on as many drives in a breakaway third quarter and Florida Atlantic held Charlotte scoreless for all of the second half for a 38-9 victory Thursday night, just hours after each university announced it will be leaving Conference USA.

Perry was a crisp 9 of 11 passing for 225 yards and three touchdowns.

Johnny Ford rushed for 92 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for 32 yards and another score.

Chris Reynolds was 22-for-31 passing for 219 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for Charlotte, which was held to 77 yards on the ground.
