Wildcats Take Florida Classic with 21-16 Victory

Game Stats 

ORLANDO, Fla. - Several unique Bethune-Cookman streaks concluded at Saturday's Florida Blue Florida Classic, but the most important ones continued as the Wildcats downed Florida A&M 21-16 before a Florida Citrus Bowl crowd of 32,317.

Quentin Williams threw for 120 yards and one touchdown, also rushing for 86 yards as the Wildcats won their seventh consecutive game and 13th in conference play dating back to last season.

The Wildcats (9-2 overall, 8-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) already clinched the conference championship and a berth in the FCS playoffs. They'll learn their playoff opponent Sunday.

B-CU had three streaks snapped - 25 consecutive scoring quarters, seven games without surrendering an offensive touchdown and 17 consecutive games with an interception - but got the big defensive stop needed to win this rivalry game for the second consecutive year.

Florida A&M (4-7, 4-4 MEAC) closed to 21-16 on a Damien Fleming 37-yarder to Dewayne Harvey with 8:04 remaining, then started its final possession on its 47-yard line.

ORANGEBURG, SC - The South Carolina State Bulldogs (5-6 overall, 4-4 MEAC) close out the regular season with a, 27-13 victory over Savannah State (1-10, 0-8 MEAC) Saturday at Dawson Stadium/Jeffries Field.

South Carolina State saluted and honored 17 seniors who played their final home game against Savannah State on the day.

Aggies Take Advantage of NCCU Miscues to Edge Eagles in Overtime

Game Stats

DURHAM, N.C. - North Carolina A&T's all-time leading rusher Mike Mayhew closed out his college career with a 5-yard touchdown dash in overtime to defeat rival North Carolina Central University, 22-16, on Saturday inside a sold out O'Kelly-Riddick Stadium in Durham, N.C.

Mayhew amassed 116 of the Aggies' 162 ground yards, while NCCU's failure to consistently execute the snap from center resulted in a team total of negative-51 rushing yards for the Eagles, which proved to be a deciding factor in the outcome of the game.

On at least four occasions, NCCU's snap from center got past the intended target. The first sailed over punter Matthew Cornelius's head and resulted in a safety for A&T's first points. The last one came on a third-and-1 play in overtime, with the Eagles needing a touchdown to even the score, which resulted in a 38-yard loss and sent most of the 11,184 fans scrambling for the exits.

Howard Comes From Behind to Capture Second Place

Game Stats

WASHINGTON, DC- Howard University erupted for 35 unanswered point in the second half to come from behind and defeat Delaware State, 41-34 in a thrilling, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game at Greene Stadium.

With the win, the Bison (7-4, 6-2 in the MEAC) capture second place in the conference.  Delaware State was tied with Howard coming into the game as was North Carolina Central, which lost to North Carolina A&T.

The two teams had a feeling out process to start the game before the Hornets (6-5, 5-3 in the MEAC) drew first blood with a 32-yard field goal at the 4:36 mark of the first quarter.  The Bison were unable to get untracked, so the Hornets made good of the opportunity with their highly efficient offense.  Quarterback Nick Elko engineered a nine-play, 70-yard drive that was capped off with an 18-yard pass to Justin Wilson.
