AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - Adam Breneman caught two touchdown passes and UMass topped Wagner 34-10 on Saturday in the first matchup between these schools since 1931.

Breneman, who finished with eight catches for 138 yards, capped the opening possession with a 28-yard score from Andrew Ford, giving the Minutemen (2-7) an early 7-0 lead. The duo connected again for points with 47 seconds left in the first quarter, this time for a 6-yard hookup.

Another TD throw from Ford and two field goals in the second quarter gave UMass a 27-0 lead at halftime. Ford carried for a 16-yard score early in the third quarter to put the game well out reach. Ford threw for 355 yards and three TDs.

Alex Thomson had 295 yards passing, one touchdown and one interception for Wagner (4-4).

Named to the Mackey Award Watch List earlier this month, presented annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end, Breneman leads UMass in receptions (52), yards (622) and touchdowns (6).
