Maine Black Bears (2-9)


New Hampshire claims share of title, tops Maine in OT, 42-41

ORONO, Maine (AP) Dylan Laube ran for three touchdowns and New Hampshire picked up a share of its first Colonial Athletic Association title since 2014 by holding off rival Maine in overtime, 42-41 Saturday to win the Border Battle rivalry game.

The Black Bears, who tied the game with 3:11 left in regulation when Elijah Barnwell punched in from the 2-yard line, scored on Joe Fagnano's 19-yard touchdown pass to Rohan Jones in their half of the first overtime period. Maine opted to go for the outright win with a two-point conversion, but Fagnano's pass to Freddie Brock fell incomplete.

New Hampshire (8-3, 7-1) finished the regular season tied with William & Mary, which knocked off Richmond 37-26 Saturday to finish 7-1 in conference. The Tribe claims the CAA's automatic berth into the FCS playoffs on a tiebreaker. The Wildcats now await an at-large berth when the tournament field is announced Sunday. UNH has not reached the FCS playoffs since 2017.
