Duane Mitchell hauled in three touchdown passes from Paul Jones to lead Robert Morris to a 24-3 win over Bryant on Saturday.

Jones and Mitchell connected for a 67-yard score on the game's third play from scrimmage to give Robert Morris (4-4, 2-1 Northeast) an early lead. Jones and Mitchell then hooked up for a 12-yard touchdown and a 13-yard touchdown on consecutive drives in the third quarter to put the Colonials up 24-3. Mitchell finished with 92 yards receiving, all of which came on his three touchdown receptions.

Bryant (4-5, 2-2) had four turnovers, three of which occurred in Robert Morris territory. Three of the turnovers came on interceptions thrown by Mike Westerhaus, who finished just 14-of-33 for 115 yards. Michael Perry had 131 yards rushing for Bryant, but the Bulldogs managed only 226 yards of total offense.
