Duquesne 36, Morehead State 33 (OT)

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Niel Loebig threw for 301 yards and five touchdowns, including a 2-yard scoring pass to Alex Roberson in overtime, to lead Duquesne to a come-from-behind 36-33 victory over Morehead State on Saturday.

Loebig connected with Roberson and Michel Warfield for two touchdowns apiece and also hit Dan Spriggs for another score for Duquesne (7-2). Loebig became the fifth quarterback in NCAA I-AA history to reach 10,000 career passing yards and 100 career touchdowns.

Tyler Cvitkovic completed 14-of-16 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown for Morehead State (6-5).

Trailing 30-20 after the third quarter, Duquesne sent the game into overtime on a 24-yard field goal by John Harris and Loebig's 4-yard pass to Roberson that capped a 12-play, 72-yard drive with 3:18 remaining.

Adam Jones kicked a 28-yard field goal for Morehead State in overtime, but another Loebig-Roberson connection won the game for Duquesne.

Chris Stockleman had a 12-yard touchdown run and James Spencer-Howell recovered a fumble and raced 57 yards to lead Morehead State to a 14-0 first-quarter lead. After Warfield's 5- and 14-yard TD receptions, Jones kicked a field goal to keep Morehead State ahead 16-14 at the half.

Cvitkovic's 36-yard pass to Dana Calhoun and a 1-yard run by Dan Spriggs, sandwiched around Loebig's 9-yard scoring pass to Spriggs, put Morehead State up 30-20 with 19 seconds left in the third quarter. Morehead State outgained Duquesne 221-132 on the ground.
