MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Jordan Harris blocked a Robert Morris punt near midfield with 1:16 left, setting up Jordan Brown's game-winning touchdown in Bryant's 34-27 victory on Saturday.

Following the blocked punt, the Bulldogs (5-3, 3-2 Northeast Conference) took over on the Robert Morris 25-yard line with 1:16 to go, and moved 15 yards on the first two plays of the drive. Brown then finished it with a 10-yard run for the go-ahead score.

Brown finished with 179 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. Mike Croce had 249 yards and three touchdowns on 20 of 28 passing, while throwing eight times to Matt Tracey for 92 yards and two touchdowns.

Bryant led 13-10 early in the second quarter until Robert Morris (2-5, 2-2) scored on Anthony Coleman's 16-yard pass to Jeff Sinclair with 8:46 to go until halftime. The Colonials didn't trail again until Brown's game-winner.
