DURHAM, N.H. - The University of Maine took a 17-7 lead midway through the second quarter, and 20-16, heading into the fourth quarter of its final regular-season football game Saturday.

But the University of New Hampshire took advantage of two turnovers, both of which gave the Wildcats the ball on the Maine 18. UNH scored two touchdowns to go on and beat the Black Bears 30-27.

Maine (8-3, 6-2) finished in a three-way tie for second-place in the Colonial Athletic Association. Towson (9-2, 7-1) is the champion after its 28-17 win over Rhode Island.

The Black Bears still have the NCAA playoffs to look forward to. They will learn who and where they play when the playoff teams are announced Sunday morning at 10 a.m.
