Paul Mroz brought Rhode Island (0-3) back with a 62-yard strike to Khayri Denny - the Rams' second TD of the season. Isaiah Hill intercepted Hosch, leading to a Justin Rohrwasser 33-yard field goal and Rhode Island closed to 14-10.

But Harvard scored again with 44 seconds left in the half and shut Rhode Island out after halftime. The Crimson outgained the Rams 476 yards to 310.
