B-CC gets tripped by late kick

Brian Morgan kicked a 36-yard field goal with nine seconds left to give Grambling a 24-23 victory over Bethune-Cookman on Saturday in the Ohio Classic.

A crowd of 35,608 at Paul Brown Stadium watched the game that annually pits historically black colleges.

Bethune-Cookman led 13-0 at the half and was on top 23-14 early in the fourth quarter after Eric Weems' second touchdown of the game.

But Grambling moved 63 yards in three plays, scoring on a 46-yard pass from Brandon Landers to Clyde Edwards with 4:55 left to pull to 23-21. After forcing a Wildcats punt, the Tigers took over at their 17 with 1:22 left.

Landers completed passes of 24 yards to Edwards and 13 yards to Bakari Guice, rushed for 14 yards on a scramble and benefited from an interference penalty to give the Tigers a first down at the Bethune-Cookman 18.

After three incompletions, Morgan converted the kick.

Jimmie Russell rushed for 86 yards on 15 carries for the Wildcats, including a 29-yard scoring run. Weems scored on a 17-yard run and caught a 36-yard score from Jarod Rucker. Jesus Cortez added a 41-yard field goal.

Landry Carter scored on a 4-yard run and Henry Tolbert had a 29-yard TD reception from Landers for Grambling.

FAU 27, MID. TENN 20: Jared Allen threw three touchdowns, all in a 21-point third quarter, to rally the visiting Owls. Allen erased a 17-6 halftime deficit with scores of 36 yards to Roosevelt Bynes, 2 yards to Anthony Crissinger-Hill and 47 yards to Larry Taylor as Florida Atlantic improved to 3-0. He finished 16-of-25 for 273 yards and no interceptions.

TEMPLE 38, FAMU 7: Walter Washington rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns and threw for another score to help the Owls snap a nine-game losing streak. Umar Ferguson rushed for 118 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries for Temple, which won for the first time since beating Middle Tennessee on Oct. 4, 2003. The Owls earned their first home victory at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, where they went winless last season after the stadium opened.

CHARLESTON SO. 38, JU 3: Collin Drafts threw two touchdowns to receiver Eddie Gadson and Robert Adams added two rushing scores to lead the visiting Buccaneers. Charleston Southern snapped a nine-game losing streak dating to last season, when it went 1-11.
