JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jamal Adjamah scored three touchdowns and Jacksonville defeated Division II Walsh 56-31 on Saturday, two days before the university resumes classes following Hurricane Irma.

Rylan Wells finished 14-of-18 passing for 206 yards, throwing for three touchdowns with no interceptions for the Dolphins (1-1). Adjamah rushed 12 times for 99 yards and two scores.

Wells connected with Adjamah on a 23-yard scoring pass early in the game. Kasey Tingler responded with a 44-yard field goal for Walsh but the Dolphins scored four more touchdowns before the half to lead 35-3.

Mitchell Ault was 20 of 26 for 238 yards receiving for the Cavaliers (0-2), but was intercepted twice. He also ran for a score.
