DURHAM, N.H. -- R.J. Toman passed for 255 yards and four touchdowns to lead New Hampshire to a 32-24 victory over Albany on Saturday.

Albany's Vinny Esposito completed 21 of 31 for 283 yards and one touchdown.

UNH, 3-0, scored less than a minute and a half into the game when Toman and Scott Sicko connected on a 65-yard pass, the first of Sicko's two touchdown catches, before Albany, 1-2, scored 17 straight. Herb Glass hit a 47-yard field goal, David McCarty scored on a 19-yard run and Esposito romped 11 yards on a quarterback sneak for a 17-7 lead.

Toman made it 17-14 at the end of the first half with a 19-yard pass to Chad Kackert. Two errant Albany snaps early in the 3rd quarter set up the next two UNH scores -- a 24-yard pass from Toman to Sicko and a safety after punter Chris Lynch scooped up a bad pass at his 20 and flipped the ball out of the end zone.

Albany marched 77 yards to take a 24-23 lead on a 19-yard pass from Esposito to Chris Kenneally mid-way through the 3rd quarter. Then Toman hit Mike Boyle with a 24-yarder to give UNH a 29-24 lead. A two-point pass attempt failed, but Tom Manning finished the scoring with a 45-yard field goal four seconds into the 4th quarter.
