#7 Richmond gets it done in 3 OTs, 36-30 over #17 Albany


ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – David Broadus scored on a 4-yard run in the third overtime and the Richmond defense held on the ensuing possession for a 36-30 win over Albany on Saturday.

Deontez Thompson did most of the damage in overtime, rushing for 42 of his 112 yards and scoring his third touchdown on a 14-yard run to tie the game in the second OT.

Thompson was stopped on his PAT run after the Broadus touchdown but Albany only picked up seven yards on two runs and had two incompletions.

Thompson’s second TD capped a long drive and put Richmond (5-1, 2-1 Colonial Athletic) up 20-13 with 2:44 to play. But Neven Sussman hit Jordan Crockett for a 51-yard score to tie it with 1:17 to play. Albany (4-1, 1-1) got the ball back but Ethan Starks missed a 50-yard field goal wide right on the final play of regulation.
