New Hampshire 34, Massachusetts 28

AMHERST, Mass. (AP) -- Quarterback Ricky Santos and split end David Ball connected for four touchdown passes to lead New Hampshire to a 34-28 win over Massachusetts on Saturday.

The victory put New Hampshire (5-1,7-1) in a tie for first in the Atlantic 10 North Division with UMass (5-1, 6-2).

Santos set a UNH career record for touchdown passes with 54. He wound up the game 18 for 28, for 248 yards.

Ball had nine catches for 199 yards. His last gave the Wildcats a 31-21 lead early in the fourth quarter.

The Wildcats' last points came on a 29-yard field goal by Connor McCormick in the fourth quarter.

New Hampshire led 17-7 at halftime.

UMass rallied to go ahead 21-17 in the third quarter on the second of two touchdown runs by Steve Baylark, who had 116 yards on the ground.

But Santos found Ball with a 12-yard pass late in the third, putting the Wildcats ahead for good.
