DeMarco, Old Dominion rout Georgia State 40-17
ATLANTA (AP)—Thomas DeMarco ran for two touchdowns and threw for another as Old Dominion beat Georgia State 40-17 on Saturday.
The Monarchs (2-0), who converted two blocked punts into two touchdowns in the second quarter, have won seven straight games dating back to last season.
Paul Morant came up with both blocks. His first blocked Matt Hubbard punt was returned by teammate Blair Roberts for a 36-yard touchdown. Morant’s second block was recovered at the 19 and set up a short drive that culminated in an 8-yard TD pass from DeMarco to Reid Evans.
DeMarco added a 4-yard touchdown run with 4:27 in the third quarter and a 2-yard TD run with 10:39 to play.
Georgia State (1-1) scored on a 2-yard run by Donald Russell and a 5-yard run by Travis Evans, as well as a 26-yard field goal by Christian Benvenuto.
