CORAOPOLIS, Pa. (AP) -- Drew Geyer threw for 313 yards and five
touchdowns for Robert Morris, but Josh Dudash threw for 411 and
five touchdowns of his own, including the game-winner with 6:02
left as Stony Brook beat Robert Morris 38-37 on Saturday.
Four of Dudash's scoring strikes went to Lynell Suggs, who had
game highs of eight catches and 210 yards for Stony Brook (4-4, 3-2
Northeast Conference), including a 91-yarder to open the scoring
less than five minutes in the game.
Robert Morris (2-6, 1-4) blew a 31-14 late in the second half
because they were unable to contain Dudash and Suggs. But during a
wild second quarter, Stony Brook was unable to stop Geyer and
Tyjuan Massey, who scored on passes of 37, 9, 33 and 40 yards.
Robert Morris, which also got a 37-yard field goal from Nate
DiLorenzo, scored 31 second-quarter points.
But Suggs, who had staked Stony Brook to a 14-0 lead with a
6-yard touchdown catch from Dudash last in the first quarter, cut
the Robert Morris lead to 31-20 when he scored on a 34-yard pass
from Dudash with 16 seconds left in the half.
Suggs scored the only points of the third quarter on a 35-yard
pass from Dudash, and Stony Brook finally regained the lead, 32-31
early in the fourth quarter on field goals of 29 and 35 yards from
The lead didn't last long. Geyer threw 74 yards to Devin Wilson
for a touchdown that gave Robert Morris a 37-32 lead on the next
play from scrimmage. Geyer's two-point conversion pass failed.
Three plays later, Dudash hit Joe Taraziewicz from 12 yards out
to cap a lightning quick 65-yard drive.
Trying to slow the game down for one last scoring drive, Robert
Morris ran nearly four minutes off the clock on a 10-play, 54 yard
drive that ended on downs. Robert Morris forced Stony Brook to punt
after a three-and-out series, but the Colonials' last drive stalled
and they again lost the ball on downs with 18 seconds left.
Dudash then took a knee to run out the clock.
