ORONO, Maine (AP) -- Ryan Callahan had two touchdowns and 130
receiving yards to lead Maine to a 20-7 win over Villanova on
Saturday.

Maine quarterback Ron Whitcomb connected with Callahan for an
80-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. Whitcomb
completed 19 of 29 passes for 209 yards and the score.

Villanova (2-4, 1-2 Atlantic 10) was held to minus-24 yards
rushing as Maine (4-2, 3-0) held a 337-170 edge in total offense.

Maine led 13-0 at halftime after second quarter Devin McNeill
field goals of 24 and 36 yards.

Callahan took an option up the middle for a 49-yard touchdown in
the third to put the Black Bears ahead 20-0.

Wildcats quarterback Marvin Burroughs' 8-yard touchdown run with
9:05 remaining drew Villanova within two scores, but Maine
recovered a fumble and intercepted Burroughs on Villanova's next
two possessions to seal its third straight conference win.

Maine has outscored its opponents 82-19 at home this season.

Burroughs finished the day 24 of 36 for 209 yards.
