ORONO, Maine -- Marcus Wasilewski threw four touchdown passes Saturday to lead Maine to a 51-7 victory over Georgia State in the final game for retiring Panthers coach Bill Curry.

Two of Wasilewski's touchdown passes were much longer: a 69-yarder to Damarr Aultman that came shortly after Nigel Jones went 79 yards with a screen pass to score. Maine scored 21 points in the second quarter and 17 in the third to lead 48-3.
