CCSU built a 21-10 halftime lead on a pair of second-quarter touchdown passes from Dolegala. He hit Joey Fields on a 74-yard catch-and-run, and hooked up with Jose Garcia on a 25-yard scoring strike. Dolegala finished 18 of 36 with 243 yards. Cameron Nash had 97 yards rushing on 13 carries with a 2-yard touchdown run.
