ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Kevin Smith rushed for 188 yards and two touchdowns as UCF easily beat Marshall 47-13 on Saturday.

Smith -- the second-leading rusher in the country going into the game -- had 29 carries, including an 87-yard touchdown run. He also caught four passes for 48 yards.

Marshall (1-8, 1-4 Conference USA) got a 45-yard touchdown run from Chubb Small and two field goals from Anthony Binswanger.

Quarterback Kyle Israel completed 14 of 21 passes for 203 yards and two touchdowns for UCF (6-3, 4-1). Both of his scoring passes went to redshirt freshman Brian Watters.

Smith's 87-yard run came on a trap play up the middle. The run gave UCF a 20-0 second-quarter lead and made Smith the only running back in Division I with two 80-plus yard touchdown runs this season.

UCF freshman Darrin Brown returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown to complete the scoring. That was one of three interceptions for the Knights, all in the second half.
