DURHAM, N.H. (AP) -- Ricky Santos completed 12 of 21 passes for
166 yards and five touchdowns during the first half to lead New
Hampshire to a 62-24 win over Towson on Saturday.

Santos teamed up with David Ball on scoring plays of five and 27
yards to give New Hampshire (8-2, 5-2) a 14-0 lead 5:20 into the
game. A 42-yard field goal by Connor McCormick pushed that to 17-0.

Santos threw for his third touchdown in the first quarter on a
3-yard play to Shaun Diner with 15 seconds remaining to bring the

extended the lead to 31-0 at 12:30 in the second.

Ron Halbruner made a 23-yard field goal at 6:36 for Towson (3-7,
0-7), but a 51-yard punt return by David Bailey and a 34-yard pass
play from Santos to Ball brought New Hampshire's lead to 45-3
before the half.

Touchdowns 1:46 apart by Andrae Brown on a 15-yard reception and
P.D. Moore on a 65-yard interception return trimmed the lead to
45-17 in the third quarter. McCormick connected on a 27-yard field
goal attempt to bring it to 48-17.
