Rhode Island 21, Fordham 17

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 (1-2) trailed for the first time in the game after

Peter Maetzold’s 19-yard touchdown run put Fordham (1-2) ahead

17-14 with 3:52 to play.

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.

Hurd, who finished with 112 yards on 26 carries, was one of

three Rhode Island players to run for more than 100 yards. Anthony

Baskerville had 120 yards on 12 carries and Deontray Johnson ran

for 107 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.
