ORONO, Maine -- Chris Ferguson threw for one touchdown and ran for another and Maine took an early lead and held it, defeating Albany 28-9 on Saturday.
Ferguson was 21-of-30 passing for 244 yards for the Black Bears (5-3, 4-1 Colonial Athletic Association). Ramon Jefferson ran for 93 yards and a score and Earnest Edwards had 114 yards and a touchdown receiving.
Ferguson threw a 77-yard touchdown to Edwards on the first play from scrimmage. Albany's opening drive stalled when defensive back Darrius Hart intercepted Vincent Testaverde and the Great Danes (2-6, 0-5) failed to earn a first down for the rest of the half, leaving it to the Black Bears to dominate as Ferguson and Jefferson each ran for a touchdown before halftime, giving Maine a 21-0 lead.
A Ferguson interception early in the third quarter led to a 38-yard field goal by Albany's Ethan Stark and backup quarterback Jeff Undercuffler threw a touchdown in the fourth to cut Maine's lead to 21-9 with 11:50 to play.
