AKRON, Ohio -- 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.
