WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) Matthew Sluka accounted for three touchdowns, Peter Oliver ran for 175 yards and scored twice, and No. 8-seed Holy Cross was never threatened in its 35-19 win over New Hampshire in the second round of the FCS playoffs on Saturday.
The Crusaders (12-0) never trailed. They advance to play the winner between top-ranked South Dakota State and Delaware.
Oliver's 39-yard touchdown run with 7:27 left in the first quarter finished a six-play, 63-yard drive set up after Crusaders safety Walter Reynolds came up with the first of three interceptions of New Hampshire quarterback Max Brosmer.
