WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Jake Phillips threw for two touchdowns and William & Mary capitalized on interceptions en route to a 27-22 victory over Towson on Saturday.

Towson (2-3, 0-3 Colonial Athletic Association) led 13-3 early in the second quarter, before Derek Cox intercepted quarterback Sean Schaefer, which set up a drive that led to a 41-yard field goal by Brian Pate, who also had a 41-yarder in the third.

Earlier in the third quarter, Cox picked off another Schaefer pass at the 6-yard line, and ran it back 69 yards to set up another scoring drive that ended in a touchdown by Tony Viola.

Sean Lissemore intercepted a pass in the first quarter, which set up the first touchdown of the game for the Tribe (3-2, 1-1).

Schaefer was 21-for-40 and three interceptions and 208 yards.

Phillips completed 10 of 23 passes for 179 yards with one interception.

The Tigers had 422 total offensive yards to William & Mary's 284 yards.

Mark Bencivengo scored three field goals for Towson.
