Holy Cross 27, Colgate 20

Associated Press

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- Dominic Randolph threw a pair of fourth quarter touchdown passes on Saturday to rally Holy Cross from seven points down for a 27-20 win over Colgate.

Randolph, who completed 29-of-42 passes for a career single-game best of 441 yards, threw a 26-yard scoring strike to Brett McDermott with 13:43 to play to make it 20-20.

He then hit Justin Maher with a 3-yard touchdown pass with 7:28 to play to cap a seven-play, 69-yard drive.

Colgate (7-4, 4-2 Patriot League) drove to the Crusaders' 46 in the final minutes, but Holy Cross linebacker Mark Kelliher hit quarterback Alex Relph as he was passing and Kyle Mushaweh intercepted to seal the win.

Jordan Scott led the Raiders with 206 yards rushing and three touchdowns, including a 4-yarder and 1-yarder to give the Raiders a 14-0 lead by early in the second quarter.

Randolph three a 35-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Gass and Matt Partain kicked a 41-yard field goal to pull the Crusaders (7-4, 4-2) within 14-10 at halftime.

Scott's third touchdown on a 9-yard run on the opening possession of the third quarter gave Colgate a 20-10 lead.

Relph finished 17-of-24 for 224 yards, but was intercepted three times.

The loss denied the Raiders of a share of Patriot League crown.
