Dunn tosses three TD passes in 68-0 victory

September 8, 2002


— Marc Dunn threw three touchdown passes and Terence Newman scored on offense and special teams as Kansas State defeated Louisiana-Monroe, 68-0, Saturday night.

After punting the first time they had the ball, the Wildcats (2-0) took a 47-0 halftime lead by scoring touchdowns on each of their next five possessions and adding TDs on a punt return and a return of a blocked punt.

It was Louisiana-Monroe's largest margin of defeat since they re-entered Division I-A in 1994.

The Indians (0-2), who lost 62-7 in 1998 in their only other trip to Manhattan, reached Kansas State territory once, when reserve quarterback Steven Jyles scrambled 1 yard to the 49 with 4:46 left.

Kansas State outgained the Indians 485 yards to 160 and even scored when the clock didn't run. Given an extra play with 0:00 showing when the Indians were flagged for intentional grounding on the final play of the first quarter, Newman went 40 yards with a punt return to make it 28-0.

Dunn, who also scored on a 1-yard run, was 7-of-10 for 147 yards and three TDs.

The Indians, who are 8-46 on the road since 1994, had 38 total yards in the first half to Kansas State's 242.

Dunn's first TD pass went 17 yards to James Terry. After Andy Klocke partially blocked a Louisiana-Monroe punt, Dunn capped a 2-play drive with a 1-run scoring run.
