Towson football faces Elon, looking to end longest losing streak since 2010

Towson takes on Elon on Saturday, seeking its first CAA win of the season.

Elon (2-6, 1-4 CAA) at Towson (1-7, 0-5)

When: Saturday, 2 p.m.

Site: Johnny Unitas Stadium

Radio: 1300 AM

Series: Towson leads, 4-1

What's at stake: Four times, since the start of its football program in 1969, Towson has dropped at least seven straight games — in 1971, 1990, 1991 and 2010. A loss to Elon would match that number. Elon itself is riding a four-game losing streak, but so what? Hapless Delaware had lost five in a row, and fired its coach, before handling the Tigers, 20-6 last week.

Key matchup: Towson against, well, itself. In a maddening display of continuity, the Tigers committed five more turnovers at Delaware. Were the season to end today, coach Rob Ambrose said it would be "an extremely underachieving year" for his team, which has yet to win a game in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Player to watch: Senior Andre Dessenberg leads Towson's receivers with 46 catches for 563 yards and a touchdown.
