DURHAM, N.H. (AP) -- Ricky Santos threw for two touchdowns and ran for another to lead New Hampshire to a 52-31 non-conference win over Dartmouth on Saturday.

Mike Boyle opened the game with a 91-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. New Hampshire capitalized on an interception a few minutes later with Boyle capping a four-play drive by running it in from three yards out.

Dartmouth got on the board five minutes later, driving the ball 25 yards after recovering a fumbled punt.

But New Hampshire dominated play, scoring on eight of 12 possessions.

With just under four minutes left in the first quarter, New Hampshire drove 67 yards to take a 21-7 lead.

The two teams traded field goals and touchdowns in the second quarter to end the half with New Hampshire maintaining its 14-point advantage at 31-17.

New Hampshire added two more scores 1:44 apart in the third on a 15-yard pass from Santos to Keith LeVan and a 5-yard keeper by Santos.

Dartmouth's Tom Bennewitz's 4-yard pass to Mark Brogna made the score 45-24 with 46 seconds left in the quarter.

But New Hampshire went back in front by 28 points on a 12-yard pass play from R.J. Toman to Kevon Mason at 11:49 of the fourth quarter. The Big Green closed the scoring at 2:32 on a 9-yard pass from Alex Jenny to Brett Lowe.
