ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Neil Morrison returned a fumble 79 yards for a touchdown with seconds remaining allowing UAlbany to escape with a 14-13 win over Holy Cross on Saturday.
UAlbany, of the Colonial Athletic Association, first scored at 3:55 into fourth quarter on a 12-yard touchdown pass to Brian Parker, but still trailed Holy Cross 13-7.
Meanwhile, Holy Cross missed two kicks from 41 and 27 yards in the second half, but was driving for a score with less than a minute remaining in the game when Gabe Guild fumbled after being hit hard at the line. Morrison picked-up the ball and ran for an Great Dane touchdown.  The extra point was good and UAlbany prevailed 14-13.
