MEMPHIS, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Danny Wimprine threw for 203 yards and four touchdowns Saturday as Memphis rolled to a 42-10 Conference USA victory over Army in a battle of struggling teams.
Wimprine completed 12 of 21 passes with an interception as he became the school's all-time freshman passing leader with 1,034 yards, surpassing Neil Suber and Travis Anglin, both of whom he has supplanted as starter.
His 11 touchdown passes is more than the combined totals as freshmen of Suber and Anglin, upperclassmen who both saw extensive action earlier this year. However, Wimprine has started the last six games.
Wimprine also ran for 55 yards and a score and Dante Brown rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown for Memphis (5-5, 3-3 C-USA), which snapped a three-game losing streak. Antoine Harden had three catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns.
Army (2-8, 2-5) has lost three in a row and five of six. The Black Knights host traditional rival Navy in the season finale on Dec. 1.
A 41-yard field goal by Derek Jacobs gave Army the lead just under six minutes into the game before Wimprine threw touchdown passes of 38 yards to Bunkie Perkins and three yards to Ryan Johnson less than four minutes apart later in the first period.
Brown's six-yard touchdown run capped a 98-yard drive and made it 21-0 midway through the second quarter.
A fumble set up C.J. Young's one-yard touchdown run that pulled the Black Knights within 21-10 with 6 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter.
But Wimprine retaliated in the fourth quarter, cashing in on a pair of turnovers. In a span of 10:02, he threw scoring passes of 12 and 67 yards to Harden around his own one-yard scoring run.
Perkins caught four passes for 91 yards for the Tigers, who held a 371-321 advantage in total yards.
Curtis Zervic, who replaced an ineffective Chad Jenkins in last week's loss to Buffalo, was 16 of 33 for 154 yards for Army, which committed four turnovers.
