STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Running back Zack Zwinak scored three times for the second consecutive week in leading Penn State to a 34-0 win over Kent State on Saturday.
All three of Zwinak's runs came from inside 2 yards a week after his three touchdowns weren't enough in a 34-31 loss to Central Florida.
Bill Belton had 90 yards rushing and also scored on a 15-yard catch for Penn State (3-1), which now gets an extra week off before opening its Big Ten Conference schedule against Indiana on Oct. 5.
Kent State (1-3) lost its third straight game since opening the season with a 17-10 win over Liberty. And the Golden Flashes' offense continues to lack spark minus its top threat, running back Dri Archer, who did not play because of an injury to his left ankle.
Quarterback Colin Reardon finished 12 of 28 for 100 yards passing and an interception as Kent State was limited to 190 yards offense.
