Zach Terrell, who had four touchdowns and 275 passing yards,

completed a 54-yard scoring strike to Corey Davis with five minutes

remaining in the game to give Western Michigan a 31-30 victory over

the University of Massachusetts Saturday.

Coach P.J. Fleck garnered his first win at Western Michigan

(1-8, 1-4 Mid-American Conference) as the Broncos had to hold on

for their first victory of the season.

The Minutemen (1-7, 1-3) mounted a 68-yard scoring drive in the

final minutes that ended with Lorenzo Woodley rushing in for the

score from the 2 with 22 seconds remaining. UMass opted to go for

two, but A.J. Doyle’s pass attempt fell incomplete.

The ensuing onside kick was recovered by the Broncos.

The Minutemen started fast as Khary Bailey-Smith returned the

opening kickoff 90 yards for a score. They led throughout the first

half, going into the break 21-17.
