Towson 41, Bowie State 7

10/16/2004 - Towson Tigers

TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- Matt Brunetti rushed for a career-best 94
yards and two touchdowns and Towson forced five turnovers in a 41-7
rout of Division II Bowie State Saturday night.

Kerry Miles ran for a career-high two scores and 85 yards as the
Division I-AA Tigers (3-3) improved to 5-0 lifetime against Bowie
State (3-5) in their first meeting since 1977.

Isaac Redman ran for 95 yards and a touchdown for the Bulldogs,
who have lost three straight and four of five.

Towson's defense intercepted four passes -- including Marcus
Frisby's 46-yard return for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter
-- and recovered a fumble. The Bulldogs failed to complete a pass in
nine attempts.

Lightning delayed the start of the game 37 minutes, and Towson
scored on its first two possessions for a 14-0 lead.

Miles' 8-yard scamper capped a 54-yard march on the opening
drive.

Bowie State stalled on its initial drive and a poor punt and a
personal foul penalty on the Bulldogs gave Towson the ball at the
Bowie 28. Three plays later, Brunetti scored on a 5-yard run.

Bowie State's Kalvin McGee returned the second half kickoff 58
yards to the Towson 38 and Redman scored the Bulldogs' lone
touchdown, breaking three tackles on a 26-yard burst up the middle
2:15 into the third quarter.

The Tigers responded with a 14-play, 54-yard drive that ate 7:47
off the clock. Miles made it 21-7, running off right tackle from
the 1.

Three plays into the fourth quarter, Brunetti bulled in from 7
yards for his second touchdown.

Towson's Eugene King scored on a 1-yard run with 8:29 left in
the game.
