South Carolina State routs mistake-prone FAMU 31-13
TALLAHASSEE -- Quarterback Reese McCampbell connected with Terrance Metcalf for three touchdowns Saturday to lead South Carolina State to a 31-13 win against Florida A&M.
The touchdowns came in the first half as South Carolina State took a 31-0 halftime lead. Florida A&M had four turnovers in the first half and six in the game.
"Our defense is pretty much our backbone," Metcalf said. "Any time we have a great game offensively, it pretty much is a guaranteed win."
McCampbell hit Metcalf for a 6-yard touchdown with 10:30 left in the first quarter to give the Bulldogs a 6-0 lead. They connected again less than two minutes later on a 27-yard pass after defensive end Eugene Williams recovered a fumble by Florida A&M quarterback Casey Printers.
Florida A&M lost three fumbles in the first quarter, including one into the end zone by receiver Dennis Bonga as he tried to score.
McCampbell and Metcalf teamed for their third touchdown on a 60-yard pass with 10:51 left in the second quarter.
South Carolina State, which failed to convert an extra point and three two-point conversions in the first half, took a 24-0 lead on a 2-yard run by Sharard Pritchett. Kambui Maxwell scored on a 5-yard run with 51 seconds left in the second quarter to give South Carolina State a 31-0 lead.
McCampbell rushed for 84 yards in the first half and completed 8 of 11 passes for 160 yards. Florida A&M had 7 rushing yards before halftime.
Backup quarterback Reggie Hayes led Florida A&M to its only scores, hitting Rod Miller on a 13-yard touchdown with 3:52 left in the third quarter. Hayes threw a 6-yard touchdown to Bonga with 5:13 left.
'Noles get to work on No. 1 Hurricanes
TALLAHASSEE -- After playing three games in 13 days, the Seminoles began preparations for next weekend's trip to Miami with a one-hour workout.
The Seminoles focused on special teams and work against scout teams imitating the Hurricanes offense and defense.
"We got some pretty good work in," coach Bobby Bowden said. "We've got a few guys limping so it will be good to have these extra days to get them healthy.
"We'll go in pads on Monday, that'll be the best day for us."
