MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Paul Jones tossed three touchdown passes and the defense put together a solid performance to lead Robert Morris to a 31-14 win over Morgan State on Saturday.

The Colonials (1-1) shut out Morgan State for the first three quarters and allowed just 291 yards of total offense as the Bears struggled to get anything going until the fourth quarter. Morgan State (0-2) managed just 62 yards rushing and turned the ball over three times.

Robert Morris led 14-0 at halftime and extended its lead early in the third quarter with a 23-yard touchdown pass from Jones to Chad Dawgiello.

Morgan State cut the lead to 21-7 early in the fourth, but Jones responded on the following possession with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Duane Mitchell.

Moses Skillon threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns for Morgan State.
