ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Justin Holman threw two touchdown passes and Dontravious Wilson scored twice, all in the first quarter, as the University of Central Florida routed winless SMU 53-7.

Holman completed 15 of 22 passes for 228 yards as UCF (7-3, 5-1) kept alive its hopes for another American Athletic Conference championship. Wilson had 80 yards on 15 carries. His backup, sophomore Michah Reed, picked up 112 yards on 26 carries.

SMU (0-10, 0-6) committed five turnovers and had only 116 yards of offense and four first downs. The Mustangs picked off Holman twice, but still allowed 490 yards for the game.

The rout was on early as UCF played a near-perfect first quarter. The Knights got touchdown runs of 1 and 11 yards from Wilson and TD passes of 58 and 18 yards from Holman to J.J. Worton and Breshad Perriman to run away to a 27-0 lead. UCF ran 27 plays in the quarter, had 247 yards total offense, no turnovers and no penalties.
