Quarterback Zach Terrell was 29 of 35 for 398 yards and three touchdown passes – two to Carrington Thompson and one to Corey Davis. WMU (8-0, 4-0 MAC) finished with 569 yards total offense. Thompson had eight catches for 177 yards and the two touchdowns. Jarvion Franklin rushed for 114 yards.
The Broncos will have a few days off as they’ll travel to Ball State for a Tuesday, Nov. 1 matchup.
