TOWSON (4-7, 2-5) @ RHODE ISLAND (0-11, 0-7)
When: Saturday, 12:30 p.m.
Site: Meade Stadium, Kingston, R.I.
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Audio: 1300 AM, TowsonTigers.com
Series: Towson leads, 7-6
What's at stake: Last week's 37-14 loss to No. 22 William and Mary ensured that the Tigers would finish with a losing record overall and in the Colonial Athletic Association for the first time since 2010, when that squad went 1-10 overall and 0-8 in the conference. But Towson is hoping a victory in the finale can help send a positive message heading into the offseason. Rhode Island seeks to end a 15-game losing streak that dates back to a 12-10 win over Richmond on Oct. 19, 2013. The Rams haven't beaten Towson in Kingston since 1992.
Key matchup: The Tigers and Rams are two of the most generous defenses in the league. Towson has surrendered 29.9 points per game this season, while Rhode Island is worse, allowing an average of 36.5 points. That would seem to bode well for both offenses, but the Tigers rank ninth in scoring in the CAA (16.9 points per game). The Rams are dead last in the conference, averaging just 12.5 points.
