Towson 54, UNH 51

Quarterback Nathan Kent tossed five touchdown passes and running back Devin Matthews rushed for 114 yards and scored the winning touchdown in overtime as Towson defeated New Hampshire 54-51 Saturday at Wildcat Stadium.


After Nick Mazzie kicked a field goal on UNH’s overtime possession, Matthews scored on a 2-yard run as the Tigers won after scoring 10 points in the last 3 1/2 minutes of regulation to force overtime.

Unranked Towson took its first lead at 13-8 early in the second quarter when Kent hit Zay Perkins on a 15-yard touchdown pass and the Tigers held the lead until Dylan Laube’s 5-yard TD run gave 14th-ranked UNH a 34-30 lead with 1:22 remaining in the third.

Laube scored on a 16-yard run on the first possession of the fourth and the Wildcats (2-3, 0-2 CAA) led 41-30.

Towson bounced back with a 24-yard touchdown pass from Kent to Daniel Thompson, but fell behind again by double digits, 48-38, when a Towson punt was blocked for a UNH touchdown.

Towson drove inside the UNH 10-yard line on the ensuing possession but settled for a short field goal with 3:43 remaining. After a UNH punt left the Tigers buried deep at the 10-yard line with 1:46 to go, Kent led a 90-yard drive that culminated in his 15-yard score-tying strike to Lukkas Londono.

Kent completed 20 of 32 passes for 236 yards with one interception. D’Ago Hunter added 109 yards rushing and 71 yards receiving for the Tigers (2-3, 1-1 Coastal Athletic Association).
