CHENEY, Wash. (AP) Vernon Adams threw for four touchdowns and Demitrius Bronson rushed for 118 yards and a score as Eastern Washington defeated North Dakota 55-17 on Saturday night.
Adams, in his third game as starting quarterback, was 12 of 15 for 151 yards for the Eagles (4-1, 3-0 Big Sky). Kyle Padron, the SMU transfer who started the season's first two contests, was 3 of 4 for 17 yards and a TD.
Braden Hanson was 16 of 22 for 141 yards for North Dakota (3-3, 1-2) in relief of starting QB Marcus Hendrickson.
Shaquille Hill returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown to give Eastern Washington a 20-10 lead in the last minute of the first quarter.
After Hanson's 1-yard scoring run got North Dakota within 27-17 in the second quarter, the Eagles broke the game open with consecutive TDs: Greg Herd's 25-yard catch from Adams just before halftime, and Ashton Clark's 12-yard run in the third quarter.

Those who are worried about Derrius Guice's character picked up some added evidence when, on Monday night, the Redskins rookie invited a bunch of fans to watch Avengers with him in Ashburn.
Man, what is this guy's deal?
First of all, not everyone likes superheroes. So how did he know that those who joined him actually wanted to see Avengers? Did he even ask? What if they wanted to see that really successful, really funny, really well-regarded Amy Schumer comedy, instead?
Then, there's the issue of Guice buying tickets and concessions for those who showed up.
Some people enjoy buying movie tickets — which are absolutely reasonably priced these days — and, as far as the concessions, seriously? Candy? Popcorn? He could've at least offered to buy something healthier, like broccoli. All movie theaters have broccoli.
Thankfully, those who took Guice up on his invitation weren't grateful for the experience at all, which hopefully means this will be the last time he orchestrates a dastardly deed like this one:
At this point, it's a surprise Guice didn't slide even farther down in the draft, like to the 15th round. Unbelievable.
