KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) — Aidan O'Neill nailed a career-best 55-yard field goal as time expired to give Towson a 32-31 come-from-behind win over Rhode Island on Saturday.

Morgan Mahalak, who had just driven Towson (4-7, 3-5 Colonial) 80 yards in five plays to close to 31-29, started at his own 9 on the next drive. The Tigers took 51 seconds to set up O'Neill for his game-winning boot.

The Tigers missed on the 2-point try on the previous touchdown and failed on the ensuing onside kick.

The Tigers defense held and Towson got the ball back. Mahalak drove his team to Rhode Island's 33 where O'Neill hit the game winner.

Mahalak threw for 353 yards and two scores. Christian Summers, who caught the last touchdown pass, grabbed 10 passes for 132 yards. Andre Dessenbert caught seven passes for 106 yards.

Jordan Vazzano led Rhode Island (2-9, 1-7), throwing for 265 yards and two scores.
