WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Coby Tippett returned a punt 62 yards for a score, the Tigers converted two turnovers into scores, and Towson shut out William & Mary in the second half to win 26-14 on Saturday.
Kobe Young scored the go-ahead TD on a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter for Towson (4-6, 2-5 Colonial Athletic Association), which trailed 14-12 at halftime. Jamal Watson's interception of Tommy McKee's pass set up Ryan Stover's 2-yard run on the next play for Towson's final score.
McKee fumbled when sacked by Kanyia Anderson on the Tribe's opening drive. Towson's Clifton Jones recovered the ball and Ellis Knudson scored on a 1-yard run four plays later.
