DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Bethune-Cookman jumped to a 31-point halftime lead and added four second-half touchdowns to complete a 66-7 rout of Virginia Union on Saturday.
Bethune-Cookman (2-0) head coach Brian Jenkins relied on what he likes to call their three-headed monster at quarterback. Seniors Brodrick Waters and Jackie Wilson and junior Quentin Williams each threw a touchdown pass and combined to complete 13 of 20 passes for 182 yards.
Eight different receivers caught passes for the Wildcats, marking the first time that's happened since 2010. Jontavious Carter had two touchdown receptions.
The Wildcats defense scored twice in the first half on interceptions by Nick Addison and Nesley Marcellon.
Eric Shaw led the Virginia Union (0-1) ground attack with 14 carries for 65 yards.
