Towson football faces William & Mary aiming for a second straight win

WILLIAM & MARY (4-5, 2-4 CAA) @ TOWSON (2-7, 1-5)

When: Saturday, noon

Site: Johnny Unitas Stadium

TV: American Sports Network

Audio: 1300 AM, TowsonTigers.com

Series: William & Mary leads 9-3

What's at stake: Both teams won last week and are aiming to finish the season with a winning streak for some momentum heading into the offseason. William & Mary is coming off a 14-9 victory at Stony Brook, then ranked No. 25 in the Football Championship Subdivision, and has a chance to finish the season above .500. Towson will honor its 22 seniors prior to the game.

Key matchup: Shane Simpson, Towson's redshirt freshman who rushed for a career-high 187 yards on 21 carries and had a career-best 271 all-purpose yards vs. Elon last week, against the Tribe defense. William & Mary's defense hasn't allowed a point in the past six quarters.

Player to watch: Towson quarterback Morgan Mahalak. Mahalak returned from injury last week and was 12 of 24 passing for 148 yards and two touchdowns. It was his first game since Sept. 10.
