WMU routs Delaware St., 68-0

Western Michigan could do no wrong as their offense, defense and special teams all scored touchdowns in the 68-0 win.

As soon as Western Michigan touched the ball for the first time on offense they went to work.

WMU forced Delaware State to a 3-and-out on the opening drive. On the Broncos' first offensive play, junior running back LeVante Bellamy sprinted 40 yards down the sideline for his third touchdown of the season.

The route was on after that as Western beat Delaware State, 68-0.

The Broncos returned two punts for touchdowns, got a fumble return for a score from the defense, two made field goals from freshman kicker Gavin Peddie and the offense scored six touchdowns in the blowout win.

The shutout was the first for the Broncos since defeating Buffalo 38-0 on November 19, 2016.

Junior quarterback Jon Wassink was 23-of-30 passing for 286 yards and two touchdowns. The Broncos accumulated 241 rushing yards and Bellamy led the way with 83 yards on seven carries and a touchdown. Senior Jamauri Bogan ran 11 times for 33 yards and two touchdowns.

WMI improves their record to 1-2 and next week they hit the road to face Georgia State.
