EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Venric Mark ran for 117 yards and three touchdowns to lead Northwestern to an easy 38-7 victory over South Dakota on Saturday afternoon.

This one figured to be a breather for the Wildcats (4-0). They barely broke a sweat against their FCS opponent, building a 28-0 halftime lead with Mark going off for 97 yards and doing all his scoring.

The only real scare for Northwestern came when Kain Colter took a hard hit from South Dakota's Chris Frierson at the end of a 10-yard run. He spent most of the first quarter on the sideline with a wrist injury but finished with 46 yards passing and 38 rushing.

For South Dakota (1-2), Josh Vander Maten threw for 189 yards, but the Coyotes managed just 51 on the ground and fell to 2-26 against the Big Ten.
