MAC roundup

Mid-American football roundup — Sept. 7

Associated Press

Ball State 40, Army 14

Senior quarterback Keith Wenning passed for two touchdowns and 325 yards and Ball State defeated Army at home.

Wenning, who was 23-of-32 passing, had 15 throws for 10 or more yards and three passes for a gain of 30 or more. And it was too much for the Black Knights to keep pace.

The Cardinals, who have won three straight against Army, start the season 2-0 for the first time since 2008 when they went 12-2 and lost in the GMAC Bowl. After falling short of the MAC title game last season, the Cardinals have high expectations.

Maine 24, Massachusetts 14

Marcus Wasilewski threw for 267 yards and rushed for 76 more as Maine scored 17 unanswered points to beat UMass on the road.

Wasilewski rushed for a 39-yard touchdown to give the Black Bears (2-0) a 24-7 lead in the third quarter. He led Maine all rushers.

Maine held UMass to 265 yards of total offense.

Missouri 38, Toledo 23

James Franklin made crucial big plays on consecutive scoring drives in the second half and Missouri pulled away from Toledo at home.

Missouri (2-0) led 24-23 after Toledo (0-2) scored its first two touchdowns of the year but Franklin’s 21-yard keeper set up Henry Josey’s second 1-yard touchdown run of the game which extended Missouri’s lead to eight.

Toledos’ David Fluellen had 111 yards on 14 carries and 10 catches for 100 yards.

Central Michigan 24,
New Hampshire 21

Ron Coluzzi booted a 27-yard field goal as time expired to cap a fourth-quarter rally and give Central Michigan a 24-21 over New Hampshire.

Central Michigan (1-1) found its offensive stride late, erasing a 14-point deficit to spoil New Hampshire’s attempt at winning its season opener against an FBS foe.

The Chippewas won without two key starters, quarterback Cody Kater and running back Zurlon Tipton, who were injured in the season opener.

No. 23 Baylor 70, Buffalo 13

For the second week in a row, Baylor scored four first-quarter touchdowns, and then added four more before halftime against Buffalo in an easy home win.

Petty completed 13-of-16 passes for 388 yards and two touchdowns while playing only one drive into the second half.

By the time Petty and the rest of the starters had come out of the game, the Bears (2-0) had 576 total yards on 46 plays in only 11 minutes with the ball. They scored touchdowns on eight of nine drives, with the only non-scoring drive coming when they had the ball at the end of the first half.

Kentucky 41, Miami (Ohio) 7

Maxwell Smith threw three long touchdown passes and Jalen Whitlow and Raymond Sanders each added scoring runs as Kentucky beat Miami (Ohio) at home.

Kentucky outgained Miami 675-122 and allowed the RedHawks’ only score on a fumbled punt return.
