Towson 41, Bowie State 7

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.
