Associated Press

DENTON, Texas -- Paul McCall threw for 234 yards and four touchdowns to lead Florida International to a 42-10 victory over North Texas on Saturday night.

T.Y. Hilton caught two touchdowns and had 145 yards receiving for Florida International (2-3), which had entered the game ranked last in the nation in total offense.

But facing the fourth-worst defense in the country, McCall went 11-of-19 to notch career highs in both yardage and TDs. In his first four games combined this season, McCall had thrown one touchdown and 272 yards passing.

Giovanni Vizza passed for 274 yards and threw three interceptions for North Texas (0-5), which has yet to lead in a game this season.

Florida International running back A'mod Ned broke through for a 26-yard touchdown run, and Alonzo Phillips scooped up a blocked punt and returned it 11 years for another score.

Casey Fitzgerald caught 10 passes for 120 yards for North Texas. Micah Mosely scored on a 1-yard run with 1:03 left for North Texas' only touchdown.
