Robert Morris graduate student kicker Nick Bisceglia was awarded Big South Special Teams Player of the Week after nailing a 38-yard game-winning field goal Saturday afternoon against Hampton.

This is Bisceglia’s third game-winning field goal of his career as he hit one against Dayton in 2017 and Saint Francis in 2019.

Bisceglia was a perfect 3-for-3 against Hampton on Saturday including the game-winner.

This season he is 8-for-10 on field-goal attempts and 15-for-15 on point-after attempts. He has hit 54 consecutive PATs dating back to the 2018 season.

This is Robert Morris’ first weekly Big South honor earned since joining the conference.

Robert Morris is sporting a 3-4 overall record and a 2-2 record in Big South play this season which is good for third place in the standings.

The Colonials look to remain undefeated at home this season as they welcome no. 12 Kennesaw State Saturday at noon.
