New Hampshire 29, Hofstra 26

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- Ricky Santos threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Brown with 6:40 left to lift New Hampshire to a 29-26 win over Hofstra on Saturday.

Santos was 23-of-35 for 285 yards and four touchdown passes for the Wildcats (8-1, 6-1 Atlantic 10), who won their fourth in a row. David Ball had two scoring receptions of 30 and 14 yards. Hofstra quarterback Anton Clarkson was 32-for-48 for 322 yards and three touchdowns, but he also threw four interceptions.

His 22-yard TD throw to Terry Crenshaw in the third quarter closed the gap to 21-19. The 2-point conversion failed. The Pride (5-4, 3-3) then moved in front 26-21 on Clarkson's 10-yard TD pass to Brandon Sebald late in the third.

Santos sealed the win with his scoring pass to Brown, then made the 2-point conversion with a pass to Ball.
