ELON, N.C. (AP) - Tyler Campbell intercepted two passes and Elon posted its first shutout since 2009 with a 6-0 victory over Albany on Saturday.
Elon (4-1, 2-0 Colonial Athletic Conference), which entered allowing a CAA-worst 32 points per game, recovered two fumbles along with the two picks.
Elon has now won four straight, its longest winning streak since 2010.
Malcolm Summers, one week after rushing for a career-high 294 yards in a win over Richmond, ran for 171 yards on 39 carries for the Phoenix. It was his third straight game with 170-plus yards.
Albany (3-2, 1-1) starter Will Brunson was replaced by Neven Sussman on the final drive and drove the Great Danes to the Elon 26. But his pass to the goal line on the final play was broken up by Greg Liggs Jr. and Daniel Reid-Bennett.
Brunson was 14 of 28 for 125 yards, Sussman completed 3 of 7 passes and Karl Mofor rushed for 95 yards for the Great Danes.
