B-CC wins a close one

After three losses by a total of five points, Bethune-Cookman beat North Carolina A&T 28-24 to spoil the Aggies' homecoming before a crowd of 28,620.

Defensive back Jeff Oliver intercepted a pass by Maseo Bolin at the Wildcat 7-yard line with 50 seconds to play as Bethune (3-6, 2-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) snapped a six-game losing streak.

"We were playing a two-deep zone," said Oliver, a freshman who became the third Wildcat to pick off a Bolin pass. "I was underneath and when the receiver turned, I turned. I saw the ball _ it was just like a dying duck _ and I just had to jump up to get it."

A&T (6-3, 3-1) had its winning streak stopped at four and fell out of first place in the MEAC with its first loss in four league games.

"It's going to be real nice to be in that win column for a change," B-CC coach Jack "Cy" McClairen said. "I'm just afraid I'm going to wake up and find out it's all a dream."
