Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Zach Maynard had 232 yards passing and three touchdowns and Buffalo raced to a big halftime lead in a 40-3 win over Gardner-Webb on Saturday.

A total of 132 yards in the air went to Brett Hamlin, who had one touchdown of 7 yards.

Buffalo (2-4) took a 33-3 halftime lead on two touchdown runs of 1 yard each from Ike Nduke, 2 yards by Bran Thermilus and two short tosses from Maynard to Jesse Rack. Nduke finished with 131 yards on the ground.

The Bulls took advantage of a muffed punt to score first. The extra point was blocked, and Gardner-Webb (3-2) drove down and R. Gates kicked a field goal for its only score.

Hamlin finished out the scoring in the third with a 7-yard pass catch.

Gardner-Webb's Stan Doolittle completed 16 of 29 passes for 159 yards but was sacked three times by a defense that pressured him all game.
