SMITHFIELD, R.I. -- Larry McCoy went over 100 yards rushing for the third straight game as Duquesne won its Northeast Conference opener over Bryant 35-21 Saturday.
McCoy picked up 154 yards on 26 rushes and punched in a pair of touchdowns. The senior racked up 171 yards in a win over Valparaiso last week and 125 in a win over Dayton the week before.

Charlie Leventry's 39-yard field goal cut the lead to 21-20 with 6:15 left, and then McCoy turned in touchdown runs of 54 and 7 yards to ensure the win.
Duquesne's Sean Patterson tossed a pair of touchdown passes in the second quarter, totaling 247 yards on 22-of-36 passing.
