DURHAM, N.H. - R.J. Toman threw for 292 yards and four touchdowns to lead New Hampshire to a 42-14 rout over Towson yesterday.

The Wildcats (6-1, 3-1 Colonial Athletic Conference) won their 500th game as a football program.

New Hampshire scored 28 points in the second quarter, sparked by Toman's 48-yard touchdown pass to Mike Boyle. Robert Simpson scored on a 68-yard run to put the Wildcats ahead 21-7.

Sean Schaefer went 34-for-48 passing for 309 yards and threw one touchdown and two interceptions for the Tigers (3-5, 1-3), who have lost five straight games against New Hampshire.

New Hampshire converted three Towson turnovers into 21 points.

"The difference in the game was big plays," Tigers coach Gordy Combs said. "They made a bunch of big plays, and that's why they won. They're an experienced team. They know how to make big plays and they know how to win."
