ALBANY, N.Y. -- Dan Di Lella threw three touchdown passes, all in the first half, to lead Albany (N.Y.) to a 28-17 victory over Robert Morris on Saturday.

Di Lella finished with 279 yards on 20-for-30 passing to help the Great Danes (3-3, 3-0) remain the only unbeaten team in Northeast Conference games. The scoring passes went for 44 yards to Cole King and 9 yards to Nick Hutcherson in the first quarter and 27 yards to Ryan Kirchner 4:12 before halftime.

The Colonials (2-4, 2-1) narrowed Albany's lead in the third quarter. After stopping the Great Danes a yard short on fourth-and-8, they drove 62 yards to an 8-yard Jeff Sinclair touchdown pass to Donte Jeter. After a missed Albany field goal, Greg Langer's 36-yarder for Robert Morris made it 21-10.

Albany answered with a 72-yard touchdown drive on six plays, five of them runs by Dillon Romain, including a 1-yard touchdown.
