Dayton comes from behind to edge Robert Morris

There were a lot of first-time starters for both teams Saturday & the 1st qtr looked it. But Dayton figured it out and laid the 16th loss in 18 games against the RMU bunch.
Dayton's leadership by 3 co-captains was the difference.
******************************************
Safety Danny Leach had 2-int (i for a 93 yd TD), a forced fumble & 4 tackles.

LB Chris Beaschler had 18 TACKLES(9 solo-2 were sacks)

SE Cory Stuart had 5 catches, 91 yds, 1-TD
****************************************
LB Ryan Schwenke had a solid game with 5 tackles

Here's how the game ended. UD had a 3-point lead & RMU was driving but w/o timeouts. They did some dumb things like not step out after a catch & not throwing ball away before getting sacked. But RMU connects on a 32 yd pass to UD 28 yard line. Clock stops to set stakes but only 2 seconds remain. Spike it right? Wrong? Whole UD sideline is hollering "they can't spike". Ref tells QB "he can't spike". So center has to snap, QB has to drop back, but receivers stand expecting a spike but all they see is another sack! Coach has demonstrative argument after game. RMU webcast announcer doesn't understand why the refs said that!

In 2013 the NCAA rules changes in addition to that spearing and your out of the game rule, you can no longer spike a ball when clock starts with less than 3 seconds! OMG - Dayton players even know the rules!
