Jeremy Horne caught three of Coen's touchdown tosses. The first was for 16 yards to open the game's scoring. He also scored on passes of 21 yards in the second quarter and 54 yards in the third period to wind up with 182 yards in receptions.

Coen's other TD passes were for 80 yards to Matt Silver and for 37 yards to Victor Cruz.

Bryant (4-4) scored its only points with 20 seconds remaining in the first quarter as Lindsey Gamble capped a 75-yard drive with a 6-yard run.

UMass wound up with 593 yards in total offense, compared to 217 for Bryant. Korrey Davis with 54 yards and Chris Zardas, with 53 yards, were the rushing leaders for UMass, which did all its scoring in the first three quarters.
