New Hampshire 63, Rhode Island 21

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) -- Ricky Santos ran for three touchdowns and threw for two more as New Hampshire kept its Div. I-AA playoff hopes alive in a 63-21 victory over Rhode Island on Saturday.

New Hampshire's David Ball tied Jerry Rice's I-AA record for 100-yard receiving games in a career. Rice had 23 100-yard games for Mississippi Valley State from 1981-1984. Ball had 10 catches for 112 yards.

The Wildcats (7-3, 4-3 Atlantic 10) led 42-14 at halftime on two rushing touchdowns by Santos and two through the air to Keith LeVan.

Santos completed 23 of 32 passes for 271 yards and an interception. He ran for 132 yards on 12 carries.

Rhode Island (4-6, 2-5) got two rushing touchdowns from quarterback Derek Cassidy, including a 56-yard TD run in the first quarter. Cassidy ran for 89 yards on 18 carries. He completed 5 of 12 passes for 66 yards and one interception.

Linebacker Muji Karim set up two scores to help UNH pull away in the second quarter. The Wildcats scored following Karim's interception, and again after Karim recovered a fumble at the Rhode Island 14-yard line 1:40 before halftime.

Chad Kackert rushed for 174 yards on six carries for UNH.

On Oct. 7, Ball broke Rice's I-AA record for touchdown receptions when he caught his 51st touchdown pass. Rice set NFL records for receptions, yards and touchdowns.
