Recap: Massachusetts vs. Ball State

Amherst, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Blake Frohnapfel threw for 424 yards and Lorenzo Woodley struck for 87 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries, as Massachusetts claimed a 24-10 victory over Ball State on Wednesday.

Frohnapfel completed 28-of-44 passes, while Shadrach Abrokwah and Elgin Long added a rushing score apiece for the Minutemen (3-7, 3-3 MAC), who have won three of four since opening the year with six straight losses.

Tajae Sharp led all receivers with 239 yards on 13 catches.

Jack Milas was 23-of-37 for 210 yards, one touchdown and two late interceptions for the Cardinals (3-7, 2-4), losers of two in a row since winning back-to-back games.

Jordan Williams posted 84 yards and Ball State's lone TD on seven receptions.

The hosts were ahead by a 17-10 count when Logan Laurent missed a 34-yard attempt in the fourth, but five plays later, the Cardinals' potential game- tying drive was cut short when Milas was picked off by Trey Seals and UMass took over on Ball State's 36-yard line.

Six snaps later, on 2nd-and-goal, a seven-yard run by Long provided a 24-10 advantage for the Minutemen. Milas was then intercepted by Randall Jette at his own 39-yard line, and UMass worked all but five seconds off the clock on the ensuing nine-play series.

Abrokwah's 3-yard plunge into the end zone gave the hosts the lead on the game's opening drive -- a score set up by a 61-yard completion to Sharp one play prior. Milas connected with Williams on a 33-yard score to tie the game on the following possession.

Woodley's 1-yard scoring run pushed UMass back on top just under six minutes into the second quarter, and after a fumble by KeVonn Mabon was recovered by Khary Bailey-Smith, Laurent ended the half with a 24-yard make for a 17-7 edge.

Scott Secor hit a 37-yard try late in the third to pull the Cardinals within seven.
