Towson football takes on William & Mary in fight to stay out of last place

TOWSON (3-6, 1-5 Colonial Athletic Association) @ WILLIAM & MARY (2-7, 0-6)

When: Saturday, 2 p.m.

Site: Zable Stadium, Williamsburg, Va.

Radio: 1300 AM,

Series: William & Mary leads, 9-4

What’s at stake: The good news? Having played five ranked teams in a row, Towson gets a break. The bad news? There’s nothing riding on this penultimate game of the year except last place in the CAA. Competitive the past two weeks — an 18-17 upset of Delaware and a 33-30 double-overtime loss at No. 7 Elon — the Tigers tackle a William & Mary team that has yet to win a league game. The cellar awaits the loser.

Key matchup: With 27 sacks, the Indians defense will hound Ryan Stover, the Tigers’ freshman quarterback who passed for a career-high 303 yards and two touchdowns against Elon.

Player to watch: Towson placekicker Aidan O’Neill tied one school mark last week (at least one field goal in 13 consecutive games) and is one field goal short of equaling the career record of 32, held by Ed Kulic and Randy Bielski.
