Zach Bednarczyk threw two touchdown passes, Villanova ran for 317 yards and three scores and the Wildcats beat Rhode Island 35-0 yesterday on the Main Line.

Bednarczyk completed 8 of 9 passes for 133 yards and added 59 yards rushing. Aaron Forbes ran for 90 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries.

Villanova (5-1, 3-0 Colonial Athletic Association) limited Rhode Island to one first down – due to a personal foul – in the first quarter and the Wildcats scored touchdowns on each of their first four drives to take a 28-0 lead. Matt Gudzak’s 1-yard scoring run capped a 10-play, 75-yard drive to open the second half and capped the scoring.

Rhode Island (1-5, 0-3) was shut out for the first time since a 47-0 loss to Syracuse on Sept. 4, 2015.

Villanova allowed just 103 total yards, including 28 yards rushing – both season bests.
