HOUSTON (AP) — Bailey Zappe had three straight touchdown passes in the first half as Houston Baptist dominated NAIA’s Texas Wesleyan 58-13 on Saturday for its first win of the season.

Zappe answered with scoring tosses to DJ Dormeus, Jerreth Sterns and Trevor Larkin for a 21-7 lead early in the second quarter. The Huskies scored 58 unanswered points to roll to its first win after dropping a 36-34 decision to UTEP last week. HBU was 1-10 the last two seasons. The Huskies will face South Dakota next week.
