Senior backup quarterback Andy Vailas took over for an injured Sean Goldrich and led the UNH offense on a last-minutes scoring march that ended with a 2-yard Nico Steriti touchdown run with 19 seconds to play for a 29-26 win at No. 17 Richmond on Saturday. It was the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both teams. Goldrich scored three touchdowns on short runs and was hurt on the last one early in the fourth quarter.

The No. 7 Wildcats, who lost their opener at Toledo, have now won two straight games and are 2-1. Richmond fell to 2-2. UNH returns home next Saturday to take on Dartmouth College in a State of New Hampshire Day battle in Cowell Stadium's first night game at 6 p.m. The Wildcats beat Dartmouth, 44-14, in Durham in 2009 in the last meeting between the teams.
