The University of Rhode Island Rams (0-4) fell 27-17 to the (1-2) Maine Black Bears on Saturday afternoon in Maine. 

URI took an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter but Maine would go on to score the next 24 points to lead 24-3 with eight minutes left in the third quarter. 

URI would scored a touchdown with five minutes left in the third quarter and would scored again with just under 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter but it would not be enough. 

Rams quarterback Paul Mroz went 17-39 for 234 yards and two interceptions in the loss and was sacked six times.  

URI's biggest problem was the run game. Rhode Island rushed 29 times for -8 yards, averaging -0.3 yards per carry.  

URI returns to action next week when they vista Brown University for the Governor's Cup.

Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at Brown Stadium.
