Massachusetts quarterback Kyle Havens threw for 293 yards and two scores as the Minutemen jumped on Holy Cross early and didn't let up in a 31-7 victory on Saturday.

In addition to Havens' performance through the air, the Minutemen (2-0) rushed for 232 yards and two more touchdowns as the Crusaders (1-1) failed to slow down a multi-faceted Massachusetts offense.

The Minutemen jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter after a 19-yard touchdown reception by Dan Sheeran and a 1-yard touchdown run from John Griffin.

A Jonathan Hernandez 1-yard touchdown run followed by a 3-yard touchdown reception by Rob Blanchflower and a 37-yard field goal by Caleb Violette as time expired in the first half gave Massachusetts a 31-0 lead.

The running back duo of Griffin, who rushed for 75 yards, and Hernandez, who added 71, led the way on the ground for the Minutemen.
