SMITHFIELD, R.I. -- Jose Depadua's touchdown return on a blocked punt for Bryant sparked a landslide 34-7 victory over Assumption Saturday at Bulldog Stadium.

In the third quarter, Bryant converted a second blocked punt into a touchdown with a 2-yard return by Chad Ward.
The Bulldog's defense held Assumption to just 170 total offensive yards. The Greyhounds struggled on third down conversions, completing 1 of 15 attempts.
