AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) -- Bobby Hendry ran for 148 yards and three touchdowns as Akron beat Buffalo 38-21 on Saturday.

Hendry, who was held to just 31 yards in the first half, scored the touchdowns and rushed for 92 yards in the third quarter for the Zips (3-2).

Charlie Frye completed 26 of 41 attempts and threw for 362 yards and one touchdown.

Buffalo (0-5) dropped its 15th straight game, extending the nation's longest losing streak.

The Zips took just 28 seconds into their first possession to find the end zone, as Frye hit tight end Mike Brake over the middle for a 10 yard touchdown reception.

After Jason Swiger's 41-yard field goal, the Zips held an early 10 point lead. Buffalo's Mark Graham returned Frye's fumble 66 yards for the Bulls first score.

The Bulls pulled within a field goal as P.J. Piskorik engineered a 9-play, 50-yard drive ending with a 5-yard scoring pass to Matt Knueven.

In the second half, Frye connected on his first four attempts to the Bulls 3 yard line, from which Hendry plowed over for his first score. He also scored on 2 and 1 yard runs.

Piskorik completed 13 of 18 attempts for 119 yards and a pair of TD passes to Knueven and Brian Miller.
