Ferguson leads Maine to 35-7 win over New Hampshire

ORONO, Maine (AP) Chris Ferguson threw two touchdown passes and Drew Belcher added a 52-yard scoring toss as Maine opened the season beating New Hampshire 35-7 on Thursday night for the Brice-Cowell Musket trophy.

It was the 107th series meeting.

The Colonial Athletic Association schools faced each other in the season opener for the second straight year. It was Maine's first win over New Hampshire since 2010. New Hampshire escaped with a 24-23 victory in the season opener last year.

Ferguson threw for 199 yards and Belcher tossed just one pass, but he also hauled in five passes from Ferguson for 34 yards. Jaquan Blair grabbed three tosses for 70 yards and a score. Joe Fitzpatrick rushed 17 times for 76 yards and a touchdown for the Black Bears.

Maine jumped out to a 22-0 halftime advantage and eased to the victory.

Christian Lupoli threw for 98 yards and one score to lead New Hampshire.
