PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Tyree Jackson threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns and Buffalo used its big-play offense to remain unbeaten and roll over reeling Rutgers 42-13 Saturday.
The win was the first for the Bulls over a Big Ten Conference opponent and pushed their record to 4-0, their best start since 1981. It also extended their winning streak to seven straight games dating to last season and gave them two road wins over nonconference opponents in a season for the first time since joining the FBS ranks in 1999.
It was the third straight loss for Rutgers (1-3), which has given up 149 points in those games. Justin Davidovicz kicked two first-half field goals and Raheem Blackshear scored on a 14-yard run early in the fourth quarter with backup Gio Rescigno at quarterback.
Jackson's scoring passes covered 42 yards to Anthony Johnson, 53 to Charlie Jones and 9 to Tyler Mabry. He also threw a 59-yard rope to Johnson while rolling right to set up a 1-yard run by Kevin Marks. Jackson finished 14 of 28 with two interceptions. He has now thrown 15 touchdowns this season. << Read more
