MACOMB, Ill. -- Quarterback Zach Davis completed 13-of-21 passes for 191 yards and a touchdown to lead University of Northern Iowa past Western Illinois 30-6 on Saturday.

Corey Lewis, who had 87 yards on the ground, also added a touchdown for the Panthers (7-2, 5-1 Missouri Valley Football Conference). Derrick Law added 70 yards and a score as well.
