The Howard Bison thrilled fans with a win over UNLV and even thrilled some with a loss to Kent State, but there were no thrills to be had in Richmond. No. 6 Richmond was up 14-0 after the first quarter and cruised to a 68-21 win at Robins Stadium.
Howard (1-2) was held to 91 yards rushing and 197 passing yards.
Richmond outscored Howard 34-7 in the second quarter which all but put the game out of reach.
