State: Towson rallies, beats Delaware late, 24-17

Darius Victor's 17-yard scoring run with 49 seconds left capped a comeback and gave visiting Towson a 24-17 victory over Delaware on Saturday.

Victor amassed 113 yards on 21 attempts and Connor Frazier threw two touchdown passes for the Tigers (3-5, 1-3 Colonial Athletic Association), who ended a three-game losing streak. Towson bounced back with a spirited effort after a 62-7 loss to James Madison last week, as Frazier led three second-half scoring drives to rally the Tigers from a 14-7 halftime deficit.
