KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) Ahmere Dorsey returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown, Momodou Mbye and D.J. Stewart had interceptions - all in the fourth quarter - and Rhode Island held on to defeat New Hampshire to a 24-21 on Saturday.
The Rams (6-5, 4-4 Colonial Athletic Association) had seen a 17-0 lead get whittled down to 17-14 after New Hampshire's Carlos Washington scored back-to-back touchdowns on short runs. Dorsey fielded the ensuing kickoff and took it 95 yards for the game-saving TD.
He became the first player with a combined 1,000 return yards in a single season in the program history.
