INDIANAPOLIS -- Matt Lancaster threw for three touchdowns and rushed for two more Saturday night as Butler beat Franklin College 42-13.

For the Division III Grizzlies, Jonny West was 15 of 30 for 137 yards, one interception and a 6 yard pass to James Vaughn for a touchdown. Connor Houston scored on a 6-yard pass from Scott Moore.
