ATHENS, Ohio -- Derrius Vick, making his first start at quarterback for Ohio, passed for four touchdowns in leading the Bobcats to a 44-10 rout against Norfolk State Saturday in nonconference play.

Ohio, now 4-0 for the first time since 1976, jumped all over Norfolk State (2-2) with a 24-0 first quarter. Vick, starting in place of injured Tyler Tettleton, threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter. He hit Donte Foster on a 10-yarder to open the scoring, then found running back Beau Blankenship on a 24-yard touchdown. Blankenship later scored on a 2-yard run to make it 24-0.

Vick, who finished 14 of 20 for 199 yards and no interceptions, threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Thompson in the third quarter. Vick's second scoring pass to Foster, a 13-yarder, upped the lead to 41-0.

Norfolk State finally scored in the fourth quarter on Randy Maynes' 7-yard run.
