DAYTON, Ohio -- Backup Jack Cook threw two touchdowns and Dayton defeated Robert Morris 49-28 in the season opener for both teams Saturday.
Starter Alex Jeske was in a groove before getting hurt and completed six of seven passes for 82 yards and a score before leaving.

Richie Warfield took the handoff from Cook and carried it in for the score to make it 21-7 and Robert Morris never threatened. Warfield scored twice on the ground and once through the air.
Tucker Yinger started the scoring with a 44-yard run to put the Flyers up 7-0. The Colonials tied it on their first drive when Jimmy Walker threw 15 yards to Matthew Gonzalez. Jeske then led Dayton on a 7-play, 61-yard drive that ended with his 31-yard scoring pass to Adam Trautman to make it 14-7.
