Washington helps New Hampshire beat Villanova 34-0
VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) Carlos Washington had 179 yards rushing and two touchdowns and quarterback Trevor Knight ran for two scores to help New Hampshire beat Villanova 34-0 on Saturday.
Knight was 13-of-23 passing for 158 yards and the New Hampshire defense limited Villanova to 164 total yards, including just 13 rushing.
Washington, on the first play from scrimmage, took a handoff and raced 75 yards for a touchdown. Knight scored on an 11-yard run with 6:10 left in the first half and, after a Villanova (3-5, 0-5 Colonial Athletic Association) fumble, Washington's 16-yard TD run gave UNH (2-6, 1-4) a 24-0 lead one minute, 32 seconds later.
Knight added a 7-yard scoring run in the third quarter and Jason Hughes, who kicked a 37-yard field goal in the first quarter, made a 26-yarder early in the fourth to cap the scoring.
Villanova went three-and-out four times, punted eight times and moved into New Hampshire territory just three times. Nova missed a 41-yard field-goal attempt in the first quarter, was stopped on fourth-and-goal from the 2 just before halftime and failed to convert a fourth-and-16 from the 20 in final minutes.
