Howard Defense, Special teams Combine in Win over Florida A&M

Game Stats

WASHINGTON, DC - Howard University parlayed a rugged defense, some outstanding special teams play and the consistent running of Terrence Leffall into a 17-10 in over Florida A&M University in a key MEAC game at Greene Stadium.

There was a lot on the line coming into the game as both teams entered undefeated in conference play.  The Rattlers (2-4, 2-1 in the MEAC) got on the board first when sophomore quarterback Damien Fleming put together a 10-play, 80-yard drive that was capped off with a beautifully thrown, seven-yard TD pass to Lenworth Lennon on a fade route in the deep right corner of the end zone.

During the drive, Fleming was able to extend several plays with his ability to run and find secondary receivers.  Chase Varnadore split the uprights and Florida A&M led, 7-0 with 3:20 left in the first quarter.

Howard (4-1, 3-0 in the MEAC) responded however with a short drive of its own.  Florida A&M's defense stiffened and the Bison had to settle for a 48-yard field goal by freshman John Fleck at the 14:11 mark.

From there, the Howard defense, led by senior All American Keith Pough, began to take over, constantly pressuring Fleming into errant throws and sacking him five times.  The defense allowed the Bison to play field position and the offense was able to capitalize when sophomore quarterback Greg McGhee connected  with junior tight end David Wilson from 31 yards to give Howard a 10-7 lead at the half.

Williams, Defense Help Bethune-Cookman Handle Aggies

Game Stats

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - An efficient Quentin Williams and a resilient Bethune-Cookman defense lifted the Wildcats to a 28-12 Homecoming victory over North Carolina A&T before a Municipal Stadium sellout crowd of 10,181 that endured a 96-minute weather delay.

Williams, a sophomore, went the entire way as quarterback, rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns while throwing for 128 yards and another score as he helped the Wildcats (4-2 overall, 3-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) pull away from a tight 14-12 game early in the third quarter.

B-CU's defense limited the Aggies (2-3, 0-2 MEAC) to a pair of field goals on four penetrations of the Wildcat red zone, as Tim Burke and Rashad Payne interceptions ended scoring threats and registered a momentum-shifting stop after the Aggies closed to two points early in the second half.

A Wildcat fumble gave the Aggies the ball on the B-CU 4. The defense held the Aggies to two yards, and Aggie kicker Zach Cimaglia missed a 19-yard field goal that would have given North Carolina A&T the lead.
