TAYLOR — The Ducks scored the go-ahead touchdown with 5:54 to play, and Robinson answered, but a final two-point conversion try went awry, leading to a season-opening loss for the Rockets.

Isaiah Houston and Mason Cooper scored two touchdown runs apiece, including a 25-yard scamper from Cooper with 1:20 to play that brought the score to 28-27. Robinson then went for the two-point try to attempt to win the game, but was stopped short.

The Rockets (0-1) still had one more chance, as they recovered the ensuing onside kick, but they couldn’t pick up a first down. Taylor (1-0) took over possession and ran out the clock on the win.
