Monmouth (N.J.) 45, Sacred Heart 14

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) -- Brian Boland threw for 288 yards and four touchdowns and Miles Austin caught 10 passes for 235 yards as Monmouth beat Sacred Heart 45-14 Saturday.

Austin had 197 receiving yards in the first half as Monmouth (4-1, 2-0 Northeast) recovered from an early 7-0 deficit to take control of the game. Boland, who entered the game averaging 297.2 yards, completed 17 of 30 passes.

The Hawks also prospered from Sacred Heart mistakes. Three times the Pioneers (1-4, 0-2) failed to punt when the snap went over the head of punter David Wahlen, and twice a safety resulted.

Sacred Heart was limited to 123 yards of total offense. Ed Pricolo rushed 18 times for 113 yards, including a 77-yard touchdown on the Pioneers' first play from scrimmage. That run gave Pricolo the school's all-time rushing record. He has 2,476 yards for his career despite missing most of his sophomore year with a hip injury.
