HBCU Football Roundup: Tennessee State Shakes Rattlers, NC A&T Survives

Tim Broughton and Telvin Hooks combined for 201 rushing yards and two touchdowns as Tennessee State stopped Florida A&M, 27-7, at Bragg Memorial Stadium in Tallahassee Saturday.

Broughton rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown, while Hooks had 77 yards and a score himself.

Last week, neither the Tigers (1-1) nor the Rattlers (1-1) could mount much offense and it continued this week, though Tennessee State found just enough.

The Tigers benefited more from their special teams and defense than their offense.

In the first quarter for example, FAMU quarterback Damien Fleming changed the play at the line of scrimmage, fooling no one. Tigers safety David Van Dyke jumped the new route, picked off Fleming and returned the ball 46 to give TSU a 7-0 lead.

Later in the quarter, Broughton's 10-yard scoring run gave Tennessee State its first offensive touchdown for the season.

Florida A&M finally got on the board when Fleming connected with Lenworth Lennon from 36 yards out to cut the Rattlers' deficit to 14-7 in the second quarter.

That momentum evaporated 14 seconds later, however. On the ensuing kickoff, Martine Stevenson, a redshirt junior, cut right through the middle of FAMU's special teams and raced 95 yards for the touchdown. It was TSU's first kickoff return for a touchdown since Weldon Garlington did it Oct. 1, 2011 against Austin Peay.

Hooks scored from 14 yards out in the third quarter to complete the scoring.

The Aggies (1-0) scored 24 straight points and withstood a furious fourth-quarter rally from the Mountaineers (0-2) at Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone.

ASU took the early lead when Jamal Londry-Jackson hit Marcus Cox for a 35-yard score in the first quarter.

NC A&T answered back quickly when Tony McRae took the ensuing kickoff back 91 yards for a 7-6 lead.

As time ran out in the first quarter, signal caller Kwashaun Quick found Desmond Lawrence for a two-yard scoring toss.

D'Vonte Grant's 57-yard interception return of a Londry-Jackson pass made it 21-6 heading into halftime.

The Aggies closed out their scoring in the fourth quarter on Cody Jones' 27-yard field goal.

Appalachian State had switched out quarterbacks at halftime, substituting Kameron Bryant for Londry-Jackson and the move paid off in the fourth quarter.

Bryant threw for 191 yards and connected with Barrett Burns and then Cox for touchdowns. Unfortunately, Cox's score came with 24 seconds left in the game.
