Massachusetts 38, New Hampshire 21

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) -- Steve Baylark rushed for three touchdowns and 192 yards on 43 carries -- all career highs -- to lead Massachusetts over New Hampshire 38-21 Saturday.

Quarterback Tim Day added two more TDs for the Minutemen, completing 18 of 33 for 293 yards in the air. He connected with Brandon London and Mike Douglas at distances of 9 and 7 yards.

Massachusetts (3-4, 1-3 Atlantic 10) took a 17-14 lead in the second quarter on 5- and 9-yard runs by Baylark, then never looked back. Day's first TD pass to London opened the lead to 24-14 with 33 seconds left in the half.

The Wildcats (4-2, 1-2) picked up their final points in the third when Mike Granieri hit David Ball from 35 yards out to score. Ricky Santos' 7-yard touchdown pass to Shaun Diner and a 49-yard interception return by Aaron Thomas, both in the first, gave New Hampshire their early lead.

Granieri, playing his first game since injuring his knee in the season opener, entered the game in the second and completed 19 of 31 for 170 yards. Santos went 16 of 32 for 98 yards and was intercepted three times. The Wildcats turned the ball over six times overall, four times on interceptions.

Massachusetts piled up 490 yards to New Hampshire's 266. The Wildcats ended with a two-yard loss on the ground. London caught seven for 136 yards for Massachusetts. Ball led New Hampshire with 15 grabs for 145 yards.
