NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- Albany (N.Y.) quarterback Dan Di Lella threw a school-record five touchdowns in a 63-35 rout of Central Connecticut State on Saturday.

Di Lella finished 14 of 22 for 283 yards passing and ran for 75 yards and a touchdown. Albany (5-2, 4-0 Northeast Conference) has won five in a row.
Di Lella threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Paul Booker early in the third quarter to make it 42-21, then ran for 2 yards for a score with 6:34 left in the third to push the lead to 49-21. Then the Albany defense got involved, when Andrew Smith picked off Blue Devils backup quarterback Andrew Clements and went 38 yards for a touchdown.
