No. 9 – As the Tiger football team traveled to No. 7 New Hampshire for their regular season finale on November 17, they knew what was at stake.

Riding a three-game win streak, the Tigers entered the match-up tied for third place in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) standings. A win would give the team their first ever win at New Hampshire, a chance to move into a tie for the CAA title and improve the team’s chances of getting a second consecutive bid to the NCAA FCS playoffs.

The Towson University football team stunned the Colonial Athletic Association leaders with 640 yards of total offense as the Tigers earned a share of the CAA championship with an impressive 64-35 victory.

With their season on the line, the Tigers outplayed the Wildcats in every phase of the game.

They scored on 10 of their 13 possessions in the win and punted only once. The Tiger offense posted the fourth-highest total of offensive yards in school history with 640. Towson ran for 415 yards, the third-highest single game total in program history.

The Tigers also controlled the time of possession, holding the ball for 39:25 while UNH had 20:35 in time of possession. Towson ran 85 offensive plays while the Wildcats had just 56 plays.

Terrance West turned in his best rushing day of the season, with 19 carries for 236 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Quarterback Grant Enders completed 20 of 28 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 39 yards on 11 carries and two touchdowns. With 2:54 left in the game, Enders scored on a 19-yard run which enabled him to become the first quarterback in Towson history to rush for 1,000 career yards.
