Associated Press

NORFOLK, Va. -- Marcus Wasilewski had 263 total yards and one touchdown to lead Maine to a 23-6 win over Norfolk State on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams.

Wasilewski hit Zedric Joseph with an 85-yard touchdown to give the Black Bears a commanding 20-6 lead early in the third quarter. Joseph finished with 90 receiving yards and rushed for another 46.

Wasilewski, who averaged nearly 215 passing yards per game last season, had 209 against Norfolk State. He also rushed for 54 yards.

Maine's defense held the Spartans to 224 total yards, but Malik Stokes came off the bench and led them to their only score.

Stokes engineered a five-play drive in the second quarter to cut Maine's lead to 13-6. He connected with Rolandan Finch for 20 yards, then on the next play threw a 34-yard touchdown to Joseph Hawkins. Stokes finished 10 of 29 for 104 yards.
