Cent. Michigan 48, Akron 21

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. -- Dan LeFevour threw four touchdown passes and ran for 140 yards, including two more TDs, in Central Michigan's 48-21 win Saturday over Akron.

LeFevour alone outrushed the entire Akron team (1-3, 0-1 Mid-American Conference), which ran 69 yards, thanks to a 53-yard dash in the first quarter that set Central Michigan (3-1, 1-0) up for its first TD on the next play.

Central Michigan's defense also carried out five sacks to keep Akron's total yards to just 196.

Akron's quarterback Matt Rodgers ran for two of his team's three touchdowns, while running back Joe Tuzze took the other.

Paris Cotton also ran for a touchdown to cap Central Michigan's victory in the first conference game of the season for both teams.
