UAlbany Pulls Off Upset of Towson, Ends Road Losing Streak
If you were looking for any evidence that UAlbany might be primed for an upset on Saturday at Towson, you only had to look back at the Great Danes' last two games against teams ranked in the top 10. Both resulted in wins.
Any optimism, however, could be pushed aside by what was a 12-game losing streak on the road for UAlbany and a convincing win at Casey Stadium by Towson last season.
The challenge remained the same as in 2018 for the Danes: find a way to contain the dangerous Tom Flacco. The Towson quarterback's improvisational threat with his legs and arm puts a lot of pressure on any defense, but UAlbany's was up to the challenge.
After the Danes scored on their opening drive in the game, they continued to capitalize on opportunities against the ninth-ranked Tigers. Jeff Undercuffler threw two touchdown passes and Karl Mofor ran for two scores as UAlbany got a much-needed win on the road, 38-21.
UAlbany moves to 4-3 on the season and now 2-1 in the CAA with a home game coming next week against Rhode Island.
