DURHAM, N.H. -- Carlos Washington Jr. broke loose for a 93-yard touchdown run and Evan Horn picked off an Albany pass in the Great Danes' end zone for a touchdown as New Hampshire won the Colonial Athletic Association contest 24-10 Saturday afternoon.

Ethan Stark kicked 49-yard field goal to put Albany up in the first quarter, but Trevor Knight got UNH on top with a 1-yard run for a touchdown and Jason Hughes kicked a 27-yard field goal to make it 10-3 at intermission. Washington broke free with 3:11 left in the third quarter to make it 17-3.
