Akron 36, VMI 13
Akron rushed for 294 yards and amassed 534 yards total offense
in a 36-13 rout of Virginia Military Institute Saturday. The
matchup of winless teams was no contest at all, not with Akron’s
Clayton Moore passing for 223 yards and three touchdowns.
The Zips (1-3) got on the board early and often, opening up a
quick 14-0 lead and leading 29-7 at halftime. Moore threw two
touchdown passes to Keith Sconiers, the first a 31-yarder to open
the scoring in the first quarter. Sconiers scored again in the
second period on a 10-yard touchdown pass, one of his eight
receptions totaling 154 yards.
VMI (0-4) got a 39-yard touchdown pass from Eric Kordenbrock to
Stefawn Ross in the first quarter. By the time VMI scored again in
the fourth quarter, Moore had thrown his third touchdown pass, this
one a 23-yarder to Jerrod Dillard for a 36-7 lead.
