KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Tyler Van Tubbergen threw six touchdown passes and ran for another score as Western Michigan routed Akron 68-19 on Friday.
The Broncos (7-5, 5-3 Mid-American) led 10-5 early in the second quarter. But Dervon Wallace's 56-yard run set up Van Tubbergen's 9-yard TD pass to Chleb Ravenell, and began a streak of eight Western Michigan touchdowns without any Akron points.
Van Tubbergen was 19 for 21 for 252 yards. He threw two TD passes apiece to Jordan White -- who had 138 yards receiving -- and one each to Ravenell, Eric Monette, Dallas Walker and Matt Cutler. He also scored on an 8-yard run and finished with 60 yards rushing. Receiver Robert Arnheim also threw a touchdown pass to Ravenell.
It was 66-5 before Akron finally scored again, on Mike Perish's 2-yard run midway through the third quarter. The Zips (1-11, 0-8) lost three fumbles during the Broncos' eight-TD spree.
