Grad student wide receiver Logan Tomlinson led all players with eight catches for 121 yards, including a two-yard touchdown.

UNH’s defense recorded six tackles for loss, including three sacks, one forced fumble and fumble recovery, an interception and seven pass breakups. Senior safety Joe Eichman recorded a team-high six tackles (six solo) and his team-leading third interception of the year.

Junior cornerback Noah Stansbury tallied five tackles (four solo) and three pass breakups. Junior linebacker Ryan Toscano also had five tackles, one of which was a strip-sack in which he recovered the fumble.
