BROOKLINE, Mass. -- John Griffin rushed for 200 yards and a touchdown as Northeastern beat Towson 24-7 on Saturday.

Griffin scored on a 70-yard run and turned in the Huskies' first 200-yard rushing game in two years. The win broke a 13-game losing streak for the Huskies (1-6, 1/3 Colonial Athletic Association).

The Huskies also benefited from five interceptions, including one by Mike Lukenda that was returned 20 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. Darryl Jones had two interceptions for the Huskies.

Elijah Harris scored the Huskies' other touchdown on a 10-yard run.

Jayne went 14-for-31 for 170 yards and three interceptions.
