South Carolina State Bulldogs (1-5)


Fumble recovery in end zone helps Bethune-Cookman win 28-26

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) Akevious Williams scored two touchdowns, Tydarius Peters forced a fumble on the conversion and Bethune-Cookman defeated South Carolina State 28-26 Saturday, for its third straight win.

The Wildcats (4-3, 2-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic) saw their early 19-point lead get whittled down to two when SC State's Tyrece Nick broke in from the 1 with 2:32 left in the game. Peters tackled Nick behind the line during the conversion, forcing the fumble. Todney Evans recovered to preserve the win for Bethune-Cookman, which ran out the clock.

Williams rushed for a career-high 110 yards on 10 carries. Trevor Merritt returned an interception 42 yards to give Bethune-Cookman a 10-0 lead, his second pick-6 in as many games.
