DAVIS, Calif. (AP) -- David Ball caught a 3-yard touchdown pass
from Ricky Santos with 35 seconds left, giving New Hampshire a
17-13 victory over UC Davis on Saturday night.
Santos was 32-for-47 for 336 yards, and John McCoy rushed for 92
yards for the Wildcats in the first meeting between the Division
I-AA schools separated by 3,089 miles.
Jon Grant went 26-for-44 for 301 yards and a touchdown for UC
Davis, which led for most of the game until the schools combined
for three touchdowns in the final four minutes.
McCoy's 6-yard TD run with 3:34 left in the fourth quarter gave
New Hampshire a 10-6 lead. Two minutes later, Brandon Rice caught a
1-yard scoring pass for UC Davis.
After Ball's score, New Hampshire safety Baron Flenory
intercepted Grant's pass at the Aggies 19 to end it.
The Aggies scored on their opening possession after Daniel
Fell's 38-yard catch set up a 5-yard touchdown run by Nelson Doris,
but Emmanuel Benjamin missed the extra point.
McCoy fumbled at the UC Davis 2 in the first quarter, and Connor
McCormick missed a 37-yard field goal to leave the Wildcats
scoreless at halftime. McCormick kicked a 24-yard field goal midway
through the third quarter.
