NORFOLK, Va. - The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats won out in a gritty defensive struggle over Norfolk State, 14-6, in Thursday night's ESPNU matchup. The crucial MEAC win keeps the Wildcats running in the conference race after defeating the 24th ranked Spartans.

Offensively, the Wildcats went right at the Spartans. After stopping the Spartans' opening drive, B-CU went churning down the field on an 88 yard drive over 14 plays, ending in a 2-yard touchdown run by Anthony Jordan with four minutes to go in the first quarter.

The Wildcats defense forced NSU to punt on the first four Spartan possessions, and keot NSU off the scoreboard until the closing moments of the first half.

NSU first lit the scoreboard with 2:18 remaining in the first half, as NSU made their first attempt on the year at a multiple quarterback approach, interchanging Nico Flores with starter Chris Walley, an using a no-huddle approach to take advantage of a short field. The B-CU defense held, thanks to a TFL from Davis and timely breakup by safety Jean Fanor, forcing NSU to settle for a 50-yard Everett Goldberg field goal to make the score 7-3, where it stayed into the half.

Given the success of the strong ground game plan, B-CU came out running early in the second half, with Isidore Jackson making three straight rushes before breaking tackles on the fourth for a 49 yard rush to the Norfolk State 2. The heavy running series set up KJ Stroud's first touchdown reception of the season on a seven yard pass from Jackie Wilson to score on the opening drive of the half.
