CHENEY, Wash.  Kyle Padron threw for 327 yards and Demitrius Bronson rushed for two touchdowns as Eastern Washington beat Wagner 29-19 in the second round of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs on Saturday.

Brandon Kaufman had 10 catches for 174 yards for the Eagles (10-2), who will face Illinois State in next week's quarterfinals.

Wagner (9-4), which saw its nine-game win streak snapped, got 60 yards rushing and a touchdown from Dominique Williams. But the Seahawks had to settle for field goals from David Lopez on four other scoring drives, and a fifth resulted in a blocked field-goal attempt.

Padron, making his first start since Sept. 8, completed 26 of 36 passes, including a 21-yard scoring toss to Ryan Seto in the first quarter. Kaufman's 1,432 receiving yards are just 21 short of Eastern Washington's single-season record.
