EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Trevor Siemian threw for 259 yards and a career-high three touchdowns, Kain Colter passed for a touchdown and ran for one, and No. 19 Northwestern pounded Syracuse 48-27 on Saturday.

Tony Jones added a personal-best 185 yards receiving and a 47-yard TD, and the Wildcats (2-0) racked up 581 yards in all. They also intercepted Syracuse's Drew Allen four times on the way to an easy victory.

How easy?

They scored the game's first 20 points and led 34-7 at the half after collecting 387 yards, with their quarterbacks picking apart Syracuse (0-2).

They each completed 11 of 12 passes in the first half, and Colter seemed to be fine after suffering a concussion early in last week's win at California.

He was 15 of 18 for 116 yards and ran for 87 yards.
