EVANSTON, Ill. -- Treyvon Green rushed for 158 yards and two touchdowns, quarterback Kain Colter ran for 106 yards and a score and passed for another, and No. 17 Northwestern beat Western Michigan 38-17 on Saturday night.

Northwestern (3-0) had 474 yards of total offense -- including 335 on the ground -- to extend its winning streak in non-conference home games to 15.

Green, the No. 3 running back on the depth chart, took advantage of the absence of starter Venric Mark, who missed his second straight game with a lower-body injury.

Western Michigan (0-3) was led by quarterback Tyler Van Tubbergen, who was 16 of 41 for 202 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
