For only the second time since Rob Ambrose became Towson's coach, the Tigers will open the season with a game at home, welcoming Central Connecticut State to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 6 p.m. The only other time in that span the Tigers played host to a season opener was in 2011, when they routed Morgan State, 42-3. Although Towson is just two games above .500 at home (15-13) under Ambrose, the program is 13-5 at Johnny Unitas Stadium in the past three years, and Ambrose said the team's recent success has had a noticeable impact in the stands.

Surrounded by a large crowd of NFL scouts and coaches Monday afternoon at rain-soaked Johnny Unitas Stadium, Towson star running back Terrance West cut sharply to his left and adeptly corralled an intermediate pass without breaking stride. West displayed sound hands, quick feet and impressive balance in front of 22 NFL teams during his Pro Day workout. He didn't drop a pass and maintained his footing despite a steady downpour. "If I had to run on fire, I'd do it, man," said West, a Northwestern graduate who measured in at 5 feet 9, 230 pounds.

Derrick Joseph injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Towson's 27-24 loss to Maine on Saturday night, and he did not return to the game. But the senior return specialist could return in time for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game at Johnny Unitas Stadium against Colonial Athletic Association opponent Stony Brook. Coach Rob Ambrose said Joseph, who ranks 22nd among all Football Championship Subdivision kick returners with a 25.6-yard average and has returned a school-record four kickoffs for touchdowns, suffered “a small strain” that does not require surgery.

As lacrosse goalies, Bryn Mawr's Molly Wolf and St. Mary's Megan Ward have the quickness and the athleticism to make spectacular saves, but they take different approaches to the position. Wolf plays a more aggressive game, eager to come out of the crease, while Ward plays more conservatively, preferring to stay home and cut down the shooters' angles. Both rank among the Top 10 goalies in the nation in ESPNHS's Class of 2012 Top 100. After playing against each other for four years, the 18-year-olds will team up for the first time Saturday.

With Towson featuring nine new starters on offense and five on defense, many expected this year's team to be a much different group from last season's squad that advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game. That difference is especially stark when considering how the 2014 Tigers have struggled to finish off opponents. While last year's team won 11 of 12 games in which it had the lead or the score was tied after three quarters, the current squad has lost two of three games in which it had the advantage or the score was tied heading into the final period.

On Towson's first play from scrimmage last week against North Carolina Central, a 9-yard reception by fullback Dreon Johnson was nullified by an illegal block penalty on senior wide receiver Spencer Wilkins. Wilkins promptly got an earful from coach Rob Ambrose, but rather than take offense, the Ellicott City resident and Mount Hebron graduate found it reassuring. "Honestly, I would take more offense if the coaches weren't yelling at me, because I would feel like they don't care," Wilkins said after a practice this week.

When Towson welcomes Maine to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday night for the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both sides, the matchup will pit two of the three teams in last year's race for the conference title. But both programs are shades of what they were in 2013. The Tigers (2-2), who advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game, absorbed a stunning 31-27 loss to Central Connecticut State in their season opener and recently won back-to-back games ito climb back to .500.

Down 14-10 near the end of the first half Saturday night at Johnny Unitas Stadium, the Towson football team had a chance to take the lead as its offense lined up on North Carolina Central's 21-yard-line. Tigers quarterback Connor Frazier scrambled to his right and threw a pass toward the back of the end zone in hopes of finding wide receiver Derrick Joseph. But Eagles defensive back Theo Livingston was in position and snagged it out of the air, resulting in the Tigers' first turnover of the season.  On the Tigers' next drive, however, from a similar spot where he threw his interception, Frazier found wide receiver Spencer Wilkins for a 22-yard touchdown.

Maybe it was nerves or the season-openening stage at home or the seemingly relentless pressure from the opposing defense. Whatever the reason, Connor Frazier's debut as the Towson football team's starting quarterback was a shaky one Saturday night. Making his first career start, the junior played inconsistently and was off target in the passing game as the Tigers fell to visiting Central Connecticut State, 31-27, at Johnny Unitas Stadium.  Frazier, whose game-winning touchdown run propelled Towson to the Football Championship Subdivision title game in January, was outplayed by Eagles junior Nick Sangiacomo, who completed 22 of 28 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns.

Towson fullback Emmanuel Holder was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association first-team after a 2013 season in which he caught 16 passes for 172 yards and three touchdowns and opened running lanes for record-setting tailback Terrance West. But the Baltimore native and Calvert Hall graduate says he doesn't get consumed by individual attention. “I don't try to get into it a whole lot,” the junior said with a slight smile on his face after Thursday's practice at Johnny Unitas Stadium.
