RICHMOND, Va. -- Kendall Gaskins and John Laub had career games as Richmond routed Gardner-Webb 41-8 Saturday night.

Following an 83-minute rain delay, Gaskins scored on a 1-yard rush in the first quarter, a 5-yard rush and a 5-yard catch in the second and a 1-yard run in the third.

The Spiders (1-1), coming off a loss to Virginia, amassed 439 yards total offense while holding the Runnin' Bulldogs (0-2) to 247 in the schools' first meeting.

Laub was 14 of 24, including a 46-yard pass to Ben Edwards that capped a 17-point first quarter. He also threw one interception.
