CINCINNATI (AP) - Isaiah Pead ran for Cincinnati's first two touchdowns Saturday night, and Zach Collaros threw for the next four - all in the first half - leading the Bearcats to a 72-10 victory over Austin Peay.

The Bearcats dominated an Ohio Valley Conference team that has only eight seniors, scoring the third-most points in their history.

Cincinnati scored on 6 of its seven first-half possessions against a defense that features one senior starter. Pead ran 40 yards for a touchdown on the Bearcats' first play. He also scored on a 13-yard run and finished with 87 yards.

Collaros, the Big East's top returning passer, played only the first half and was 12 of 19 for 134 yards. His 34-yard pass to D.J. Woods completed a 95-yard drive in the second quarter. Collaros also threw a pair of touchdown passes to Anthony McClung in the last 39 seconds of the first half for a 41-0 lead.
