DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Jack Adams rushed for 67 yards and a touchdown to help Dayton beat Robert Morris 13-0 in a weather-shortened game on Saturday.

The game was halted with nearly 10 minutes to play due to lightning and heavy rains that plagued much of the state during the afternoon. After a delay of 1 hour, 49 minutes, the teams mutually decided to call it a complete game.

After a scoreless first quarter, Dayton (2-0) got on the board with an eight-play, 50-yard drive, culminated by Adams’ 1-yard plunge. The Flyers added William Will’s 20-yard field goal following a 12-play drive as time expired on the first half. Dayton outgained RMU 204-55 before intermission.

Dayton’s David Leisring picked off Andrew Romanchak’s first pass attempt of the second half - his third in two games - and the Flyers added another short Will field goal.

Robert Morris fell to 0-2.
