ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Marcus Wasilewski threw for 231 yards and three touchdowns to guide Maine to a 33-27 win over Albany on Saturday.
It gave the Black Bears (9-1, 6-0 Colonial Athletic Association) its best start in program history and extends its win streak to six. John Ebeling hauled in two TD catches, including a short 4-yard toss from Wasilewski in the fourth quarter that gave Maine the lead that would hold for the win.
Nigel Jones rushed for just 42 yards on 12 carries, but two were for touchdowns. Derrick Johnson caught four passes for 54 yards, including a 23-yard TD.
Albany (1-9, 0-6) tied the game at the half with a 44-yard touchdown pass from Will Fiacchi to Kevin Chillis, then closed the gap on Maine early in the fourth quarter on a 4-yard rushing TD by Omar Osbourne but couldn’t reach the end zone again.
