NEW YORK (AP) — Zevi Eckhaus passed for 175 yards with two touchdowns, ran for another and Bryant defeated Wagner 31-10 on Saturday.
Bryant (5-3, 3-1 Northeast Conference) responded with back-to-back scoring drives after a fluke turnover gave Wagner a 10-3 lead, and led 17-10 by halftime.
Eckhaus had 109 yards passing in the first half with a 31-yard touchdown rainbow to Anthony Frederick in the end zone. Ishod Finger added a 9-yard touchdown run after missing the first seven games to injury.
Late in the third, Eckhaus fired a 6-yard pass to David Zorilla — his first TD catch of the season — crossing the front of the end zone for a 24-10 lead. Eckhaus scored on a 3-yard run for the capper after an interception by Jayvis Rayside ended a Wagner threat in the end zone.
In addition to Rayside’s pick, Joe Andreessen made two interceptions, the first Bulldog to do so since Sept. 1, 2018.
The Seahawks (0-7, 0-3) scored on a head’s-up defensive play when an Eckhaus screen pass bounced off David Adeboboye’s hands and Wagner’s Luke Jakubauskas picked it up on the bounce and raced 83 yards to score. The play was ruled a fumble.
Wagner’s Guenson Alexis was 10-of-20 passing for 45 yards. Jaalon Frazier added 81 yards, completing four of 12, but the pair were picked off three times and the Seahawks were held to 53 yards on the ground.
