BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) -- John Sperrazza threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Kendrick Ballantyne on fourth-and-5, then connected with Alex Broomfield on the 2-point conversion as Northeastern beat New Hampshire 36-35 in overtime on Saturday.

New Hampshire (5-2, 2-2 Atlantic 10), which has lost two in a row after starting the season with five consecutive wins, sent the game into overtime when Ricky Santos threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to David Ball with one second to play in regulation.

The Wildcats got the ball first in overtime and Santos threw an 11-yard TD pass to Mike Boyle, who finished with 14 catches for 178 yards.

Broomfield rushed nine times for 93 yards, including a 38-yard touchdown run with 53 seconds left in regulation, that put the Huskies on top 28-21. He also threw a 20-yard halfback pass to Ballantyne for a touchdown with 52 seconds to play in the first half that made it 7-7 at halftime.

Maurice Murray scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns and finished with 96 yards on 18 carries for Northeastern (3-4, 2-2).

Santos completed 41-of-66 passes for 434 yards and four touchdowns and also ran for a score. Ball, the NCAA Division I career leader in touchdown receptions, finished with 11 catches for 147 yards and three touchdowns.
