Robertson also had touchdown passes of 13 yards to Montigo Moss and 2 yards to Jamie Lamson, the latter score giving the Black Bears (2-5) the lead for good midway through the third quarter.
Ethan Greenwood and Michael Love connected on a 71-yard touchdown early in the game for the Sharks (1-5), who led 10-7 at halftime after the first of two Michael Coney field goals.
Robertson was 20-of-32 passing for 235 yards. Joe Gillette had eight catches for 102 yards.
