OXFORD, Ohio -- Zac Dysert threw for three touchdowns and became the career completions leader for Miami (Ohio) as the RedHawks spoiled Massachusetts' debut in Mid-American Conference play by winning 27-16 Saturday.

The senior's third scoring pass, a 33-yarder to Spencer Treadwell at the start of the fourth quarter, was the 855th of his career, surpassing Ben Roethlisberger for first place with the RedHawks (2-2, 1-0).

Dysert also completed touchdown passes of 49 and 17 yards to Dawan Scott and finished 12-for-22 for 192 yards while running for 76 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries.

With the RedHawks leading 14-3 in the second quarter, the Minutemen (0-4, 0-1) reached Miami territory on two straight drives but were stopped on fourth-and-1 from the 28 and the 29.

Michael Cox rushed for 188 yards on 30 carries with two second-half touchdowns for Massachusetts, but Mike Wegzyn was intercepted three times in the second half.
