BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) -- Antwon Young threw for 257 yards and three touchdowns to lead Villanova to a 30-20 win over Lehigh on Saturday.

Matt Dicken rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown, and Young threw long touchdown passes to Brandyn Harvey and Phil Atkinson for the Wildcats (1-1).

Villanova built a 20-6 halftime lead behind a 1-yard run from Dicken and two touchdown passes from Young, including an 80-yard scoring pass to Harvey.

Sedale Threatt Jr. got the Mountain Hawks (0-1) back in the game with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Sekou Yansane in the third quarter that cut Villanova's lead to 20-13.

After a field goal by Villanova at the start of the fourth, Lehigh's Kwesi Kankam scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to cut Villanova's lead to 23-20. But Young hooked up with Atkinson for a 47-yard scoring pass on the next possession to put the game out of reach.

Threatt was Lehigh's lone offensive bright spot, throwing for 302 yards and a score and rushing for 58 yards. Jason Leo kicked field goals of 29 and 34 yards to get Lehigh on the board in the first half.

Young added 55 yards rushing for Villanova as the two teams combined for 813 yards of total offense.
