LORETTO, Pa. (AP) _ Dave Loya threw for two touchdowns and ran for another Saturday as Duquesne won its 14th straight game on Saturday, routing St. Francis, Pa. 52-14.

Duquesne (5-0) now has the longest winning streak of any team in NCAA Division I-A or Division I-AA. Its last loss was a 38-20 defeat by Robert Morris in the second game of the 1995 season.

Duquesne spread the wealth. Seven different players scored touchdowns for the Dukes, eight players ran the ball and eight had catches. Duquesne’s Rich Baumgart gained 103 yards on 10 carries, mostly in the second half.

D.J. Jenkins gave the Red Flash (2-3) a 7-0 lead with a 7-yard run in the first quarter but Duquesne answered with 45 points. Joe Ranft found Chad Connors for a 19-yard touchdown just into the fourth quarter for St. Francis, which has lost to Duquesne four straight times.
