(AP) - Beau Blankenship rushed for 124 yards and a 50-yard touchdown as Ohio cruised to a 51-23 win over Massachusetts Friday.

Tyler Tettleton passed for 246 yards and two touchdowns as Ohio (7-5, 4-4 MAC) outgained UMass (1-11, 1-7) 461 to 290.

On the second play from scrimmage, Blankenship set the tempo by busting out for his long touchdown run. Tettleton followed that with a 2-yard strike to Chase Cochran and it was 14-0 before everyone settled into their seats.

The Minutemen got a 42-yard field goal from Brendon Levengood and a 3-yard TD run from Shadrach Abrokwah to cut the deficit to 14-10, but the Bobcats scored two more touchdowns and a 30-yard field goal from Josiah Yazdani to lead 31-10 at the half.

In the second half, Tettleton added a 4-yard touchdown pass to Landon Smith and Travis Carrie returned an interception 30 yards for another score.
