ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Will Brunson threw for a touchdown and ran for another, Neven Sussman scored on a keeper, and Albany beat Monmouth 28-14 on Saturday night in its home opener.

Sussman scored on an 11-yard keeper to open the scoring and Elijah Ibitokun-Hanks scored on a 6-yard run in the fourth quarter.
