Posted on 16 September 2013 by WNST Staff

UNBEATEN TIGERS RANKED 4th AGAIN

Tigers Own Second-Longest Winning Streak in FCS Football

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – For the second week in a row, the undefeated Towson University football team is ranked fourth in NCAA FCS football, according to the weekly poll which was announced by The Sports Network.

The Tigers’ number four national ranking continues to be the highest national ranking at the FCS level that they’ve ever received.

Towson was ranked 11th in the pre-season and moved up to fifth after a season-opening win at Connecticut. Back-to-back victories over Holy Cross and Delaware State enabled the Tigers to move up to fourth, ahead of Sam Houston State.

Their 49-7 victory over Delaware State extended the Tigers’ winning streak to seven games in a row. Towson closed out the 2012 season with four straight wins and has won their first three games in 2013.

Defending national champion North Dakota State (2-0) received 154 of a possible 156 first place votes to remain first in the nation. Eastern Washington (2-1) got the other two first place votes and is ranked second. Montana State (2-1) 1s ranked third, some 48 points ahead of Towson. Sam Houston State (2-1) is fifth, nearly 200 points behind the Tigers.

The Tigers, who have outscored their opponents by a 131-32 margin through three games, are sixth in the nation in scoring offense, averaging 43.7 points per game.

However, the Tiger defense is ranked near the top of FCS in all of the major categories. The Tigers are allowing 10.7 points per game, third in the nation behind Idaho State (8.3) and Bethune-Cookman.

The Towson defense leads FCS in red-zone defense (.333) and the Tigers are fifth in the nation in rushing defense, allowing 71.0 yards per game. The Tigers are also sixth in total defense, giving up 267.3 yards per contest.

Towson is one of six Colonial Athletic Association teams ranked in the FCS Top 25. New Hampshire (1-1) is ranked 11th while Stony Brook (1-1) is 16th nationally. James Madison (2-1) is 17th this week while Villanova (0-2) is 20th. Richmond (1-2) fell to 23rd in the nation after losing to Gardner-Webb.

The Tigers, who have the program’s longest winning streak since 1984, will be seeking their eighth win in a row when they visit North Carolina Central on Saturday, September 21 at 2:00 p.m.

The Tigers, who are 2-0 on the season, will be facing a Delaware State team that opened its season with a loss at Delaware.

“It will be great to play a home game,” said Coach Ambrose. “Unitas Stadium is a great place to play and our players enjoy performing in front of our fans. Delaware State is extremely talented and athletic. Delaware State has a very rich football tradition. Delaware State may have one of the most explosive teams we will play this season.”

The Tigers, who earned their highest national ranking ever in FCS football, own the second-longest winning streak in NCAA FCS (six games). It is also the longest winning streak by a Tiger football team since 1996-97 when theTigers won six games in a row.

Towson and Delaware State are meeting for the 16th time in a series that began in 1980. However, the teams have not played since 1994. Towson owns a 9-6 series advantage.

Towson is hoping to extend its history of success in home openers. The Tigers are 34-10 in home openers and have won their last nine home openers. Coach Ambrose is 4-0 in his home openers with two wins over Coastal Carolina and a victory over Morgan State and a win over William & Mary.

The Tigers enter their home opener with an explosive offensive team and a defensive unit that has allowed only 25 points in two games.

Led by senior quarterback Peter Athens (Huntingtown H.S./Huntingtown, Md.), the Tiger offense is averaging 41.0 points and 459.0 yards per game. Athens has completed 30 of 43 passes for 424 yards with one interception and three touchdowns. He is 18th in NCAA FCS in pass efficiency after two games.

Junior running back Terrance West (Northwestern H.S./Baltimore, Md.), a strong candidate for the Walter Payton Award, is tied for third in the nation in rushing, averaging 141 yards per game. West, who is the third-leading rusher in school history, has scored four touchdowns in the first two games. In his career, West has scored 48 touchdowns in 23 games.

Led by senior linebacker Telvion Clark (Granby H.S./Norfolk, Va.), the Tiger defense has allowed only three touchdowns in two games. The Tigers have yet to allow a rushing touchdown.

Towson’s defense ranks first in NCAA FCS in red-zone defense and has allowed only 33 per cent of teams reaching the red zone to score. Clark leads the team with 20 tackles.

Overall, the Tiger defense is ranked 12th in the nation, allowing 276.5 total yards per game.

The Tigers, who play four of their first five games on the road, will be back on the road next week when they visit North Carolina Central.

Towson looks for 2-0 start at Holy Cross Saturday

Posted on 07 September 2013 by WNST Staff

WORCESTER, Mass. - Hoping to extend their five-game winning streak, Coach Rob Ambrose and the fifth-ranked Tiger football team will travel to Holy Cross on Saturday afternoon to face the Crusaders at Fitton Field. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m.

The Tigers, who opened their season with an impressive 33-18 victory at Connecticut last week, have won their last five games dating back to last season. The Tigers finished off the 2012 season with four straight wins over Villanova, Delaware, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. The win over UConn extended the winning streak. Towson has the second-longest winning streak in FCS football, topped only by North Dakota State.

The Towson-Holy Cross game will be broadcast back to the Baltimore area on www.TowsonTigers.com withSpiro Morekas, Ron Meehan and Zach Maskavich describing the action.

Strangely enough, this will be the third consecutive game that the Tigers will play in New England. They closed out the 2012 with a 64-35 win at New Hampshire and they opened the 2013 campaign with a win at UConn.

The Tigers, who have their highest-ever FCS national ranking this week, will be facing Holy Cross for the eighth time. The teams met seven times from 1997 to 2003 when both schools were members of the Patriot League. Towson owns a 4-3 series lead and won the last two contests between the schools. Holy Cross has a 2-1 record against Towson at Fitton Field.

“Holy Cross is a good football team,” says Towson Coach Rob Ambrose. “They are very good on offense and they can pile up a lot of yardage and a lot of points when they are clicking.”

The Tigers, who were ranked 11th in the nation prior to their win at Connecticut, were led by junior running backTerrance West and senior running back Sterlin Phifer in the win at UConn. Both West and Phifer scored two touchdowns in the win.

West, who was named as the Colonial Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Week for the fourth time in his career, ran for 156 yards on 36 carries and scored touchdowns on a five-yard run and a six-yard run. Phifer, who transferred from Boston College prior to the 2011 season, caught a 23-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Peter Athens and scored on a five-yard TD run at UConn. Phifer ran for 39 yards on eight carries against the Huskies.

West enters this week’s game with 2,496 rushing yards in his career. He has scored 46 touchdowns in 22 career games and will tie Jason Corle’s career record when he scores his next touchdown.

In the win over UConn, the Tigers’ defensive unit played very well, holding the Huskies to 287 yards of total offense, including 81 rushing yards. Senior linebacker Telvion Clark led the Tigers with a career high 13 tackles. He also recorded one of the Tigers’ five sacks in the win.

Sophomore linebacker Bryton Barr had eight tackles, including 1.5 tackles for lost yardage. Sophomore defensive tackle Jon Desir had four tackles in the first start of his career. He also came up with one of the biggest plays of the game when he tipped a screen pass into the air and intercepted at the UConn 29-yard line. That play set up Phifer’s five-yard touchdown run which put the Tigers ahead to stay in the second quarter.

Playing in his first game as a Tiger, junior defensive end Ryan Delaire (made three tackles and had 1.5 sacks. Delaire is a transfer from the University of Massachusetts.

Delaire is one of two transfer students from UMass on the Tiger roster. Junior Brian Dowling  had an important 45-yard reception in the win over UConn.

Next week, the Tigers return home to host Delaware State on Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m.

TIGER TALES: Towson was one of seven FCS programs to post a victory over an FBS team on the first weekend of the college football season … North Dakota State, Northern Iowa, Eastern Washington, Southern Utah, McNeese State and Eastern Illinois also pulled off upsets.

When the Tigers beat Connecticut, it marked the 30th time that a CAA school had beaten an FBC program … CAA schools are responsible for some of the most surprising FBS/FCS upsets … In 2006, New Hampshire beat Northwestern (34-17) … In 2010, James Madison upset Virginia Tech (21-16).

Last season, the Tigers were ranked third in FCS football in time of possession at 34:02 … In their season opener, the Tigers continued that trend as they controlled the clock for 36:23 … That ranks seventh in FCS football.

Athens leads first practice after being named Towson starting QB

Posted on 23 August 2013 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. - Only six days before the Tigers’ season opener at the University of Connecticut, fifth-year senior quarterback Peter Athens took control of the team’s offense at their Friday afternoon workout.

Athens, who started six games as a first-year freshman in 2009, was named as the team’s starting quarterback by Coach Rob Ambrose on Thursday afternoon. He had been engaged in a competition with sophomore Connor Frazier since the start of the pre-season.

“Pete earned the starting job because of his experience,” said Coach Ambrose. “We liked the way he took leadership of the offense and got the players to follow. He is an extremely good passer and we are confident he will do a great job.”

Athens calls the opportunity “a blessing.”

He added, “I am so grateful for this opportunity. Connor and I had a great competition for the last two weeks and we really pushed each other. We are great friends and he’s a good quarterback. He will get his chance.”

The Tigers will return to the practice field on Saturday night for a 7:15 practice under the lights at Unitas Stadium.

Towson QB’s solid in final preseason scrimmage

Posted on 21 August 2013 by WNST Staff

TIGERS CONDUCT FINAL PRE-SEASON SCRIMMAGE

Athens, Frazier Continue To Compete For Starting Quarterback Job

TOWSON, Md. – With eight days remaining before the season opener at the University of Connecticut, the Tigers held their final scrimmage of the pre-season on Wednesday afternoon.

Coach Rob Ambrose guided his team through a 74-play scrimmage that featured some solid performances by the offense and some solid efforts by the defense. In addition, the team spent a lot of team on special teams play as well as situational offensive formations.

“This was a really good situational scrimmage for us,” said Coach Ambrose. “We did a lot of special teams work and ran our two-minute offense as well as red zone plays.

“I thought our first team offense and our first team defense looked sharp,” he added. “We aren’t ready to win a game yet but we will be ready by next Thursday.”

Senior Peter Athens and sophomore Connor Frazier turned in strong showings in their competition for the starting quarterback job.

On the first possession of the game, Athens drove the Tigers 75 yards in five plays for a very quick touchdown. On the drive, he completed all three pass attempts for 48 yards. He also capped off the drive with a 19-yard touchdown pass to junior Spencer Wilkins.

With Frazier at the controls, the Tiger offense scored on the third possession of the game. Frazier directed a 74-yard, nine-play march in which he completed all four pass attempts for 49 yards. Senior Sterlin Phifer capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run.

Senior wide receiver Leon Kinnard provided the biggest play of the drive when he made an acrobatic catch for a 35-yard gain to the defense’s 22-yard line.

Athens finished the scrimmage by completing six of nine passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. Frazier was also impressive a s he completed 12 passes in 16 attempts for 128 yards.

The Tigers will have a day off on Thursday before they start final preparations for the season opener next Thursday night.

Towson begins preparation for opener at UConn

Posted on 19 August 2013 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. - On Monday afternoon, Coach Rob Ambrose began practice with a history lesson.

He told his players that the Tigers had not beaten an FBS opponent.

“In every one of those games, we were beaten by the ‘wow’ factor,” he said. “It was a shock for us because we were playing a team with 85 scholarship players. As a result, we fell behind early and we couldn’t catch up.

“Today we are starting preparations for UConn,” he said. “We are not going to be intimidated. We are not going to be shocked.”

The Tigers, who dropped a 41-21 decision at Kent State in last year’s opener, have also lost games to Navy, Northwestern, Indiana, Maryland and Louisana State since 2008. Ambrose has been the Tigers’ coach for all but one of those games.

“Today we started to get into a UConn mentality,” Coach Ambrose explained after practice. “We had a really good tempo and the effort was excellent. If we can continue that kind of focus, we will be OK.”

The Tigers, who visit Connecticut on August 29, are facing a UConn team which posted a 5-7 record last year. Coach Paul Pasqualoni is starting his third season as the coach of the Huskies. He replaced Randy Edsall as UConn’s coach when Edsall took the job at Maryland.

The Tigers return to practice on Tuesday afternoon.

Towson shows improvement during second preseason scrimmage

Posted on 17 August 2013 by WNST Staff

TIGERS SHOW IMPROVEMENT DURING 2ND PRE-SEASON SCRIMMAGE
Derrick Joseph Has Productive Performance

TOWSON, Md. –
 With just 12 days remaining before the season opener at the University of Connecticut, the Towson University football team held its second scrimmage of the pre-season as they ran about 120 plays and went for more than two hours at Johnny Unitas® Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

At the end of the scrimmage, it was obvious that junior Derrick Joseph had improved his status on the team.

Joseph, a reserve wide receiver and an explosive kick return specialist during the last two years, took the opening kickoff of the scrimmage and returned it 92 yards for a touchdown. Then, he excelled at wide receiver, a spot where he is competing for playing time.

On the third possession of the scrimmage, he scored the first offensive touchdown of the game when he caught a 10-yard swing pass from Connor Frazier and avoided two tacklers on his way to the end zone. Later in the scrimmage, Joseph capped off a 55-yard, four-play touchdown drive by catching a 43-yard TD pass from senior quarterback Peter Athens.

He finished the scrimmage with four receptions for 81 yards and two touchdowns.

“Derrick is having one of the best pre-seasons of anyone I’ve had in my four years as the head coach,” said Towson Coach Rob Ambrose. “We are excited about the impact he can have with our team. He deserves a lot of credit because he has committed himself to being a complete football player.”

However, Coach Ambrose has still not decided who will be the Tigers’ starting quarterback when they open the season. Frazier and Athens appear to be the top two contenders for the spot.

“I’ve said all along that our starting quarterback will be the one who consistently outperforms the others,” he said. “We are looking for someone who does well in all phases of the game, efficiency, passing, running and directing the offense. Both Connor and Pete made some really nice plays today and they are getting better.”

Athens completed 11 of 15 passes for 173 yards and threw a pair of TD passes. In addition to his 43-yard TD pass to Joseph, he threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to junior Brian Dowling, a transfer from the University of Massachusetts. Frazier, who ran the ball well, completed five of six passes for 36 yards and a touchdown.

Coach Ambrose was especially pleased with the way the defense is playing. He said, “With the guys we have up front, we are a stout unit and we can do a good job stopping the other team’s running game. Arnold Farmer and Jon Desir do a great job closing off the gaps.”

With 12 days before the season opener, Ambrose admits “We aren’t there yet but we are getting better. The improvements are incremental but we are going in the right direction.”

After taking Sunday off, the Tigers will return to their two-a-day practice schedule on Monday.
