Towson suffers first loss against New Hampshire 26 to 14
The Towson Tigers Football team suffered their first loss of the season falling 26 to 14 on the road against New Hampshire on Saturday September 11th. New Hampshire scored 20 points in the first half which proved too much for the Tigers to come back from.
Towson used a combination of Chris Ferguson and Jeff Miller at quarterback, both struggled. Miller went 12 for 27 for just 147 yards one touchdown and two interceptions. Miller only averaged 5.4 yards per completion. Ferguson went 6 for 16 with two interceptions averaging just 3.2 yards per completion. Ferguson was also a minus 20 yards on the ground rushing.
Towson’s defense did not do much better they allowed five yards per rush. New Hampshire running backs Dylan Laube and Carlos Washington Jr. both had strong games. Washington Jr. broke off a 48 yard run and averaged 6.9 yards per carry.
The Tigers have to be able to stop the run on defense or they will be in for a long season. This was the Tigers first CAA game. The Tigers will face the 2-0 North Dakota State Bison this Saturday which will be a huge test.
