Virginia crushes Hoosiers

Mikell Simpson ran for four touchdowns and cornerback Ras-I Dowling forced two turnovers to set up scores as Virginia defeated Indiana 47-7 on Saturday.

Jameel Sewell passed for 308 yards as Virginia rolled up more than 500 yards total offense for the first time since 2004.

Simpson's first two 5-yard touchdown runs came after big plays by Dowling -- a forced fumble that Rodney McLeod returned 32 yards and an interception. Dowling also had a third-down sack after Indiana (3-3) reached the Cavaliers' 32.

Zane Parr's sack on the next play gave the ball back to Virginia (2-3), and eight plays later Simpson was untouched on a 3-yard touchdown run with 2:34 left in the first half. He also had a 1-yard TD run before being injured in the third quarter.

Bryan Payton's 12-yard touchdown run was the only score for the Hoosiers.
