TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- Andrew Goldbeck threw for a career-high 285
yards and two touchdowns, and wideout Eric Yancey added 91 yards
receiving, as Towson defeated Cornell 21-11 on Saturday.

Towson added to the lead just before the half. On a first down

the lead to 21-3 with 13:46 left in the game.
Cornell's only touchdown came with 7:39 left, when tight end
Troy Follmar caught a 23-yard pass from D.J. Busch.
Brian Romney caught six passes for 70 yards to pace the Big
