Beuchel's 3TDs send Duquesne to 52-19 win over CCSU

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- Dillon Buechel threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns, two to Wayne Capers Jr., who had 172 yards receiving, to lead Duquesne to a 52-19 win against Central Connecticut State on Saturday.

Duquesne (8-3, 5-1 Northeast Conference), which lost to conference co-champion St. Francis, struck early and often. After taking the opening kickoff, Buechel threw a 65-yard score to Capers 12 seconds into the game.

Before the quarter ended the Dukes led 21-3 after Buechel's 4-yard TD pass to Blair Roberts and A.J. Hines' 1-yard TD run. Hines had 110 yards and two scores on 23 carries.

Jacob Dolegala led a 5-play, 88-yard drive that ended when he threw a 29-yard TD to Mike Peterson to close the deficit to 21-13. But on the following kickoff, Xavier Nelson took it back 82-yards to push the lead to 15.

Dolegala threw for 291 yards and two scores and Joey Fields had five receptions and 128 yards for Central Connecticut State (2-9, 1-5).
