WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) Nathan Kent threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to Carter Runyon and Towson scored 31 points in the second half to beat William & Mary 34-24 on Saturday.

The Tigers (3-4, 2-2 Coastal Athletic Association) trailed 17-3 at halftime, then scored on five consecutive second-half possessions. They tied the game on Kent's 1-yard run and Devin Matthews' 10-yarder, then went ahead in the fourth quarter on Keegan Vaughn's second field goal.

Runyon then scored on 53- and 1-yard receptions, the latter set up on a strip-sack by Rodney Roane Jr. that Jesus Gibbs recovered, followed by an unsportsmanlike penalty that advanced the Tigers to the Tribe 20.

Kent was 19-of-28 passing for 188 yards. Matthews rushed for 117 yards on 20 carries. Runyon finished with 92 yards receiving on seven catches.

Darius Wilson threw for 129 yards and two scores, both to Hollis Mathis, for the Tribe (4-3, 2-2). Malachi Imoh rushed for 104 yards on 13 carries. The Tribe is ranked 13th in the FCS coaches poll.
