NORFOLK, Va. -- Blake LaRussa threw for 161 yards and connected with Jonathan Duhart on a 55-yard touchdown throw to cement a 31-17 win for Old Dominion over Albany in the season opener for both teams Saturday.
Old Dominion led the entire game but Albany got two quick touchdowns, including a 31-yard scoring run from Karl Mofor, to cut the gap to 24-17 midway through the fourth quarter.
Two plays later, LaRussa threw the long strike from his own 45 to Duhart, who hauled it in around the 20 and eluded a trio of defenders before diving into the end zone. LaRussa finished 14 of 20 passing but had two interceptions.
Will Brunson was 13 of 29 for 160 yards and an interception for Albany.
