Associated Press

OXFORD, Ohio -- Brandon Thermilus rushed for two touchdowns and caught another to lead Buffalo over Miami (Ohio) 42-17 on Wednesday night.

Thermilus ran for 126 yards and caught a 29-yard touchdown on his only reception for the Bulls (4-7, 2-5 Mid-American Conference). Zach Maynard was 13-for-18 with 136 yards and a touchdown, and rushed for 61 yards and a score.

Miami (1-11, 1-7) took a 3-0 advantage on Trevor Cook's 37-yard field goal less than 5 minutes into the second quarter.

It would be the last lead for the Redhawks.

Buffalo scored four unanswered touchdowns from that point, as Thermilus scored from 3 and 31 yards out and Maynard added a 2-yard run for a 21-3 halftime lead. A 30-yard touchdown pass from wideout Terrell Jackson to Jesse Rack put Buffalo up 28-3 early in the third quarter.

Zac Dysert threw for 194 yards with one touchdown and an interception for Miami.
