Bucknell's lone score came on a 12-yard touchdown pass from RJ Nitti to Charles Thompson in the second quarter to make the score 21-7.
Scheuerman totaled 188 yards rushing in the game, highlighted by his TD run of 78 yards, a career-long, to put Lafayette up 31-7 in the fourth quarter.
Bucknell was 3 of 17 on third-down conversions, and Kyle Sullivan punted as school-record 13 times for 474 yards.
