PHILADELPHIA (AP) - John Robertson threw three touchdown passes - and ran for two more and 99 yards - leading Villanova over Morgan State 48-28 on Saturday.

Kevin Monangai ran for 170 yards and two touchdowns as Villanova accumulated 364 yards rushing.

Robertson took Villanova’s first play from scrimmage 56 yards for a touchdown, but the Wildcats didn’t run away from Morgan State (4-4) until the third quarter despite a frantic pace that saw the game tied at 21 at intermission.

In the third, Villanova (7-1) busted loose for four touchdowns. Monangai started the frenzy with a 1-yard plunge following a 75-yard drive. Robertson ran for a 4-yard score after a punt block gave the Cats a short field. Robertson then threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Poppy Livers and Monangai capped it with an 81-yard romp.

Moses Skillon was 23 of 38 with a touchdown for Morgan State but threw 3 picks.
