ORONO, Maine (AP) -- Troy Harris intercepted Sean Schaefer's potential go-ahead conversion pass and returned it for two points with 2:02 remaining, helping the University of Maine hold on for a 16-13 Colonial Athletic Association football victory Saturday over Towson University.
Maine backup quarterback Mike Brusko came off the bench in the first half to replace injured starter Adam Farkes and directed two second-half scoring drives on a cold, rainy and windy afternoon at Alfond Stadium as the Black Bears (3-6, 2-4 CAA) won their second straight game.
Tailback Jermaine Henderson gave Maine the lead for good, capping a 12-play, 72-yard march with a 5-yard scoring run with 3:38 left in the fourth quarter. Bobby Donnelly's PAT kick made it 14-7 Maine.
Towson (3-6, 1-5 CAA) responded with a quick 53-yard drive and Rasheed McClaude's 1-yard plunge got the Tigers within a point, setting up the failed conversion pass.
Tailback Jhamal Fluellen carried 19 times for 82 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, before leaving the game with a left-arm injury. Brusko wound up rushing for 56 yards and completing seven of 10 passes for 66 yards. Schaefer threw 250 yards for Towson.
