YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - Andy Schmitt threw for 214 yards and four touchdowns Saturday, leading Eastern Michigan to a 38-15 victory over Howard.
Schmitt connected with Ken Bohnet, Tyrone Burke and Dwayne Priest as Eastern Michigan (2-2) built a 31-0 lead. The sophomore threw for his final touchdown with 35 seconds remaining, hitting Travis Lewis on a 10-yard pass.
Howard (1-3) was hurt by four turnovers and failed to reach the end zone until Brian Johnson hit Jarahn Williams with an 11-yard touchdown pass with 40 seconds remaining in the third quarter.
Howard added its second TD with 6:19 remaining when Johnson connected with Michael Harper for a 27-yard pass. Johnson led the Bison offense with 167 yards passing and 136 yards rushing. Howard tallied 422 yards in total offense.
Eastern led 17-0 at halftime. Pierre Walker scored on a 7-yard run on the Eagles' first possession, Zach Johnson kicked a 22-yard field goal with 6:22 left in the second quarter and Schmitt threw a 24-yard scoring pass to Priest two minutes later.
Howard twice drove deep into Eastern Michigan territory during the first half, but failed to score. One of the drives ended when Johnson fumbled on the Eagles' 9-yard line. Johnson then threw an interception at the Eastern Michigan 7 early in the second quarter before again being picked off in the final minute of the second quarter.
