The Colonials increased their lead to 13-0 with field goals of 22 and 35 yards by Garrett Clawson in the second quarter.

Cwalinski's 31-yard touchdown pass to Evers came with 0:29 left in the second quarter, which gave Robert Morris a 20-0 lead at the intermission.

The Colonials scored again with 6:57 left in the third quarter on a one-yard run by Kastelic.

Morehead State (1-1) scored its first points on a 1-yard run by Michael Kearns with 3:16 left in the third quarter. The Eagles also scored on a 51-yard pass from Evan Sawyer to Nick Feldman with 14:12 left in the game.
