WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Terrance West rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns to lead Towson past William & Mary 15-9 on Saturday.
West ran in from a yard out in the second quarter for a 7-3 lead to complete a 72-yard drive that took over 5 minutes. His 3-yard run in the third quarter finished a 71-yard drive for the 15-9 lead that held up for the Tigers (9-2, 5-2 Colonial Athletic Association).
All of the scoring for the Tribe (7-4, 4-3) came on three John Carpenter field goals.
Towson pulled out the win despite being held far below its average of 40.3 points per game against the top scoring defense in the FCS. But the Tigers responded with solid defense of their own led by cornerback Donnell Lewis who made 10 tackles and had an interception.
The victory was Towson's 10th straight on the road over two seasons.
Despite suffering two key injuries to offensive playmakers, Illinois appeared to have a productive spring as the team adapted to Lovie Smith's system.
