Karl Mofor opened the fourth quarter with a 28-yard touchdown catch and Ethan Stark kicked a 49-yard field goal, but the University at Albany football team lost to New Hampshire, 24-10, on Saturday in a CAA game in Durham, N.H.
New Hampshire, which was coming off last week’s upset win over No. 3-ranked James Madison, scored on a 93-yard touchdown run and an interception returned for a touchdown in the second half to emerge with the victory.
With UAlbany trailing 17-3, Undercuffler and Mofor connected for their TD on the first play of the fourth quarter. On a first and 10 from the UNH 28-yard line, Undercuffler found Mofor open over the middle. The sophomore then churned through a few tacklers on his way to the end zone for his fourth TD of the season, cutting the Wildcats’ lead to 17-10.
But New Hampshire took back a two-touchdown lead seven minutes later, when Evan Horn intercepted a pass in the end zone.
In the first half, Stark opened the scoring with 9:39 left in the first quarter when he connected on a 49-yard field goal that hit the crossbar and bounced through. It was the fifth-longest field goal in program history and the second longest of the season for Stark, who had a 51-yarder against Morgan State on Sept. 15.
New Hampshire answered about six minutes later on Trevor Knight’s 1-yard run, and the Wildcats added a field goal with 16 seconds left before halftime to take a 10-3 lead to the intermission.
Carlos Washington's 93-yard touchdown run with 3:11 left in the third extended the lead to 17-3.
UAlbany concludes its season Saturday, Nov. 17, when it hosts rival Stony Brook at Tom & Mary Casey Stadium.
