LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Daris Wilson ran for 106 yards and two
touchdowns and passed for a third to lead Bucknell to a 21-20
come-from-behind victory over Fordham on Saturday.
Wilson, who was 8-of-14 for 121 yards, connected with Mike
Cangelosi for an 18-yard score that gave Bucknell (5-4, 3-2 Patriot
League) the lead for good with 12:07 remaining. He had a 4-yard TD
run with 5:28 remaining in the first quarter and had a 1-yard dive
early in the second.
Bucknell held a 14-10 halftime edge, but Fordham (5-4, 2-2) took
the lead when Derric Daniels, who finished 15-of-31 for 179 yards,
threw his second touchdown pass of the game to Steve Proco. Micah
Clukey kicked his second field goal to make it 20-14.
After Wilson's go-ahead run, Fordham threatened late in the
fourth quarter, but Clukey's 35-yard field goal attempt with 2:23
to go fell short after a bounced snap. It was his second missed
field goal. Wilson ran for 39 yards on 3rd and 2 to allow the Bison
to run out the clock.
Josh DeStefano ran for a career-high 100 yards and also caught
three passes for 46 yards for Bucknell, which outrushed Fordham
268-153. James Prydatko rushed for 93 yards on just eight carries
