No. 2 Tigers football remains undefeated, tops N.C. Central
The Towson Tigers are off to a 4-0 start for the first time since 1986 following a 35-17 victory over North Carolina Central on Saturday afternoon in Durham, N.C. The Tigers led just 14-10 at halftime, but on the back of two second-half touchdowns by Terrance West, Towson extended the lead and held off the Eagles’ upset bid.
West finished with 139 yards on 31 carries. Freshman running back Darius Victor scored the first two touchdowns of his Towson career, carrying the ball six times for 53 yards.
With the victory, Towson moved up to No. 2 in the national rankings. This is the highest the team has ever been ranked in a national poll. The Tigers open conference play on the road next week against Stony Brook.
