MEMPHIS(AP) - Craig Penrose threw two touchdown passes as Denver came from behind twice, but it took Vincent White's 16-yard run with 57 seconds left to provide the 28-24 victory over Memphis.

The Showboats led 24-21 with 2:53 remaining after Alan Reid's 1-yard run capped a 16-play drive that covered 72 yards. But Denver struck back with a 66-yard drive. The key play was a 27-yard pass from Penrose to Leonard Harris at the Memphis 25. White scored two plays later.

Penrose's TD passes covered 36 yards to Scott Niziolek and 24 to John Arnold. He was intercepted once, with Memphis Terry Love returning it 79 yards for a touchdown.
