Rhode Island took a 6-2 lead into halftime on field goals of 23 and 26 yards by Brian Giannecchini.
The Minutemen tied the game at 6-6 when Kyle Harrington sacked Stefkovich in the end zone with 14:24 left in regulation.
In overtime, Stefkovich hit Jimmy Hughes with a 23-yard strike, then ran the ball three straight times.
