BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) -- Jhamal Fluellen rushed for 126 yards, including the game-winning 23-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter, to lead Maine to a 20-14 win over Northeastern on Saturday.

With Northeastern (1-7, 0-5 Colonial) trailing 17-14 and attempting to drive for a go-ahead score midway through the fourth quarter, Maine's Jonathan Calderon intercepted a pass from Anthony Orio with 6:34 left at the Black Bears' 46.

Fluellen went to work from there, carrying the ball eight times on a 12-play drive that consumed 5:47 and led to Bobby Donnelly's 31-yard field goal with 47 seconds remaining.

Maine's Landis Williams had seven catches for 105 yards and a touchdown in the first half, including a 36-yard catch that set up a 31-yard field goal by Donnelly and a 36-yard touchdown reception as the Black Bears (2-6, 1-4) took a 10-7 halftime lead. He finished with eight catches for 107 yards.

Maurice Murray rushed for 127 yards and tied the Northeastern career rushing touchdown record with his 36th on a 4-yard run that gave the Huskies a 14-10 lead with 4:10 to play in the third quarter.

Maine came back with Fluellen's 23-yard run with 2:32 left in the third.

Tony Lott scored on a 33-yard touchdown pass from Anthony Orio in the first half for Northeastern.
