Howard Bison (1-2)

Hampton takes control in the final quarter-and-a-half to seal Howard's fate with a 35-34 win

WASHINGTON (AP) Quarterback Christopher Zellous ran for two touchdowns and threw for another and helped cap a fourth quarter comeback to send Hampton past Howard 35-34 on Saturday.

Howard led 31-14 after Aaron Bickerton kicked a 24-yard field goal with 6:11 remaining in the third. On the ensuing kick off, Hampton was flagged for holding and started the drive at its own 7. Undeterred, Elijah Burris exploded for a 93-yard scoring run to shave the deficit to 10.

Early in the fourth, Bickerton's 22-yard field goal ended Howard's 13-play, 75-yard drive to serve as the Bison's final points. Later, Hampton took over deep in Howard's territory when Bickerton lost 21 yards when the ball got away on a punt attempt. Then, facing fourth-and-nine at the Howard 12, Zellous threw a touchdown to Paul Woods to make it 34-28 with 8:02 left.
