Towson 21, Cornell 11

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.

Goldbeck, who had three interceptions last week against Northeastern, rebounded by completing 24 of 36 passes with no turnovers. The win was the 200th victory in the history of Towson's (2-2) program.

Towson wasted little time getting on the board. On its first offensive possession, Towson's Kerry Miles scored on a 2-yard plunge to cap an 11-play, 56-yard drive and give the Tigers the lead just 4:54 into the game.

Towson added to the lead just before the half. On a first down play at the Cornell (1-2) 44-yard line, Andrew Goldbeck stepped out of an intense Cornell rush, and found Will Marcus open at the Cornell 15-yard line. Marcus avoided a tackler at the goal line, and upped the lead to 14-0 with 40 seconds left in the first half.

A Trevor MacMeekin field goal for the Big Red with 2:29 left in the third quarter cut the lead to 14-3, but Towson then put the game away. Goldbeck avoided an all-out blitz, hitting Yancey in stride at the Cornell 22-yard line on a 55-yard touchdown to run 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 Red.
