KINGSTON, R.I. -- Travis Hurd scored on a 3-yard run with 1:13 left and Doug Johnson had an interception at the 15-yard line to give Rhode Island a 21-17 win over Fordham on Saturday.

Rhode Island then marched 78 yards on eight plays for Hurd's second TD of the game.
After big plays from Maetzold, including a 13-yard run and a 22-yard pass, Fordham got into Rhode Island territory at the 21-yard line on second-and-10, before Maetzold threw the game-clinching interception.
