ALBANY, NY (AP) — Thomas Greaney caught two touchdown passes and his brother, defensive lineman Joseph, recovered a fumble and rumbled 77 yards for his first career touchdown as Albany beat Central Connecticut, 45 -29 Saturday.

Todd Sibley rushed for 97 yards for a touchdown on the game’s first offensive play to give the Great Danes (1-3) a lead they never relinquished and finished with 190 yards on 18 carries. Albany rushed for 224 yards and scored three rushing touchdowns.

Reese Poffenbarger passed 18 of 26 for 257 yards and two touchdowns.

Nasir Smith rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries to lead the Blue Devils (0-4). Shon Mitchell was held for 116 yards on 7 of 16 passes.

Mitchell pulled back to pass fourth down in the red zone, but Albany’s pass rush pushed him to a fumble on the Great Danes’ 23 and Joseph Greaney recovered the loose ball and ran intact for the touchdown with 11:16 to go in the third quarter. Poffenbarger then found Thomas Greaney for two touchdowns in the third quarter to give Albany a 45-20 lead heading into the final period.
