LEWISBURG, Pa. — LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Peter Pujals had 378 yards total offense, throwing for three touchdowns and rushing for three more as Holy Cross pounded Bucknell 51-27 in Patriot League conference play Saturday.

Pujals was 19 of 29 for 298 yards and also led the Crusaders (3-4, 1-0 Patriot) in rushing with 80 yards on 13 carries. Holy Cross was able to score on 7 of 11 drives and was forced to punt the ball only once during the game. Kicker John Macomber contributed a first quarter field goal from 48 yards.

The Holy Cross defense forced four Bucknell turnovers including three interceptions of Bison QB RJ Nitti. The first just 8 plays into the game's opening drive as Crusaders defensive back Kyle Young picked off a Nitti pass for a 79-yard touchdown return. The Crusaders held the Bison (1-4, 0-2) —who have now lost four straight —to only six points in the second half.
