ALBANY, N.Y. -- Justin Semmes ran for what turned out to be the game-winning score as Rhode Island topped Albany 19-13 in overtime Saturday night.
With the game tied at 13, Semmes scored from the 1 to give the Rams (1-2, 1-1 Colonial Athletic Association) the lead. On the ensuing possession James Timmins sacked Will Fiacchi for a loss of 11 yards, forcing Albany (1-2, 0-1) into 4th and 19. Mackenzie Elliott then broke up Fiacchi's fourth-down pass to seal the win for Rhode Island.
Bob Bentsen's 3-yard touchdown run in the third quarter gave the Rams a 13-0 lead, but Albany came storming back with touchdown runs by Omar Osbourne and Jake Meek on its next two drives to tie the game at 13.
Albany's kicking game faltered, allowing Rhode Island to block both an extra point attempt and a 27-yard field goal attempt by Tom O'Riordan. O'Riordan also missed a 40-yarder.
