Towson (6-0, 2-0 Colonial Athletic Association) ran up a whopping 731 yards in total offense, as the Tigers came back from a 20-3 first quarter deficit to run away with the conference matchup.
New Hampshire (1-3, 0-1) put up three touchdowns in the first quarter, including a 29-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Jared Allison to Harold Spears, but the Wildcats didn't score again until late in the fourth quarter when the outcome was no longer in doubt.
