The Washington University in St. Louis football team snapped a two-game losing streak with a 36-6 victory over Westminster College on Saturday night at Francis Field in St. Louis, Mo. The Bears led 10-0 at halftime, but erupted for 26 second-half points.

The big play of the drive was a 43-yard completion from Sherman to freshman Drew Sexton. The Bears pushed the halftime advantage to 10-0 after a three-yard touchdown run by sophomore Chris Castelluccio with 46.2 seconds left in the half.

After the Bears' defense forced a punt, Sherman found Sexton for an 18-yard touchdown to make it 19-0. The Bears put the game out of reach on their next possession, as Sherman found junior Easton Knott in the end zone for a 24-yard TD to extend the lead to 26-0.
