BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Joe Licata threw four touchdown passes to help Buffalo snap a four-game losing streak with a 55-24 win over Akron on Tuesday night.

Buffalo (4-6, 2-4 Mid-American) rushed for a season-high 310 yards, led by Anthone Taylor's 178 yards and a touchdown. Jordan Johnson added 104 yards rushing and a score.

On the second play from scrimmage, DeAndre Scott intercepted a Licata pass and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown, giving Akron a 7-0 lead just 23 seconds in.

Taylor lost a fumble on Buffalo's ensuing possession, but the Bulls forced a three-and-out.

On fourth-and-3, Johnson faked a run up the middle before hitting Matt Weiser with a jump-pass for a 33-yard touchdown, the first of 21-straight points for Buffalo.

Akron (4-6, 2-4) trailed by double-digits the rest of the way.

Interim coach Alex Wood, who replaced Jeff Quinn on Oct. 13, earned his first win at Buffalo.
