After throwing what coach Jack Cosgrove called a dumb interception into the end zone, Maine quarterback Marcus Wasilewski composed himself and led the Black Bears to a 24-14 victory over UMass last Saturday.
“I knew it was a mistake, a dumb play, but you are going to make mistakes,” said Wasilewski.
“But the most important thing, put it behind you.”
With his 267 yards through the air, Wasilewski moved past his coach (Class of 1978) into ninth place in program history for passing yardage.
The victory has Maine off to a 2-0 start to the season entering Saturday’s home opener against fellow unbeaten Bryant (2-0) at Alfond Stadium. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
