Jackson-Johnson combo propels Buffalo past Ball State 40-24

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) Tyree Jackson connected with Anthony Johnson for four touchdowns, including three in the first half, and Buffalo breezed to a 40-24 victory over Ball State on Thursday night.

A 33-yard field goal by Adam Mitcheson and Jackson's first hook-up with Johnson - a 21-yarder - gave the Bulls (5-6, 3-4 Mid-American Conference) a 10-0 first-quarter lead. Jackson found Johnson for a 14-yard score to stretch the lead to 17-0 at 11:27 in the second quarter.

Morgan Hagee got the Cardinals (2-9, 0-7) on the scoreboard with a 21-yard field goal, but Jackson found Johnson for the third time - from 11 yards out - to make it 23-3. Jack Milas hit Nolan Givan for an 11-yard score with 49 seconds left to pull the Cardinals within 23-10 at halftime.

The Bulls sandwiched a K.J. Osborn 16-yard TD run and Jackson's last scoring toss to Johnson - a 56-yarder - around a 50-yard TD run by Ball State's Malik Dunner to lead 37-17 after three quarters.

Jackson finished with 350 yards passing and became the first Bull to throw for 300-plus yards in three straight games. Johnson totaled 153 yards on seven catches.

Buffalo won at Ball State for the first time in five tries. The Cardinals lead the series 9-2.

Milas passed for 127 yards and two scores for Ball State, while Caleb Huntley totaled 141 yards on 26 carries.
