GENEVA, N.Y. (AP) -- Steven Webb rushed for 161 yards and three touchdowns as Hobart ended Gallaudet's magical season 34-7 in the first round of the NCAA Division III playoffs on Saturday.

Gallaudet (9-2), a university for the deaf and hard of hearing, made its first ever NCAA tournament appearance. The Bison won its first Eastern Collegiate Football Conference title and tied a school record with nine wins.

Hobart (10-0) scored 20 points in the second quarter to blow the game open. Devin Worthington had a 48-yard fumble return, Webb scored from 1-yard out and Mike Berkowitz caught a pass from the 1. Webb scored again from 58 yards out on the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter. Webb set Hobart's single-season record for rushing touchdowns with 20.

BJ Flores scored the first ever Gallaudet touchdown in the postseason on his 1-yard run with 12:13 left in the fourth quarter.
