FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Dillon Buechel threw two first quarter touchdown passes and Duquesne cruised to a 41-14 victory over Sacred Heart on Saturday.

Buechel was 22 of 37 for 320 yards. Chris King had nine catches for 111 yards with a touchdown. Reggie McKnight had a touchdown catch and Rafiq Douglas ran for a 13-yard touchdown for Duquesne (7-3, 4-1 Northeast Conference), which snapped a two-game losing skid against Sacred Heart (4-5, 1-3).

Buechel threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to McKnight and an 18-yard scoring strike to King on the first two offensive series. Austin Crimmins kicked a 40-yard punt to pin the Pioneers on their 5-yard line, and Pioneers quarterback RJ Noel fumbled two plays later. Zach Zidian recovered in the end zone to put the Dukes up 21-0 in the first quarter.

Crimmins made two field goals, and Christian Kuntz had an interception return for a touchdown late for the Dukes.
