Camdin Crouse, who came into the game in relief of Robert Morris' starting quarterback Jeff Sinclair, engineered the 14-play drive that won the game. He had completions of 22 and 13 yards and picked up a first down on Albany's 3-yard line, setting up the winning kick. Crouse finished 6-for-7 with 90 yards passing.
Trailing 10-3 at halftime and after a scoreless third quarter, Albany pulled even when Vinny Esposito threw an 11-yard TD pass to Paul Booker midway through the fourth.
Clawson also connected on a 39-yard kick just before halftime for Robert Morris (3-6, 3-3 Northeast Conference).
Esposito was 13-for-31 with 168 yards and two interceptions for Albany (6-4, 5-2), who had their school record 12-game home winning streak halted.
