State colleges roundup

S.C. STATE 48, FAMU 14: Caleb York passed for four touchdowns and the visiting Bulldogs overpowered the Rattlers in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener for both schools.

York capped a seven-play, 43-yard drive with a 3-yard pass to Ahmaad Harris to give South Carolina State the early lead.

Florida A&M (0-4) tied the score in the second quarter when Kenneth Coleman found Desmond Noird with a 19-yard touchdown pass, but it was all S.C. State after that.

Jacksonville 24, Stetson 7: Rylan Wells threw for 213 yards and two touchdowns in just 10 completions for the visiting Dolphins (2-1) in the Pioneer Football League opener for both them and the Hatters (1-2).

S.C. State 16, B-CU 10, OT: Bethune-Cookman (0-3, 0-1 MEAC) rallied to force overtime but Akevious Williams, who ran for Bethune-Cookman's lone touchdown, was intercepted in overtime and host South Carolina State scored on Cantrell Frazier's 9-yard run to end the game.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.
