MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Troy High School graduate Matt Barr, the true freshman quarterback for the Robert Morris University football team, had the biggest day of his young career in leading the Colonials to a 35-24 win over Notre Dame College Saturday.

Barr finished 14-for-18 for 156 yards. He threw for a touchdown and ran for two as well, becoming the first Colonial freshman quarterback to post multiple rushing touchdowns in a contest. Barr’s 77.8 completion percentage is the third-highest in RMU single game history (minimum 10 attempts).

With the win, Robert Morris improved to 1-2. The Colonials will travel to South Dakota State, the N0. 7 FCS team in the nation, Saturday.

Alex Dalton

Dalton redshirted last season for the Sooners, but has appeared in two of their three games so far this season.
