KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Ryan Schneider threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns Saturday to lead Central Florida to its first Mid-American Conference win, 31-27 over Western Michigan.

UCF, which joined the MAC in football this season, lost its debut last month at Marshall.

A 12-yard score from Schneider to Doug Gabriel with 14:30 left gave UCF its first lead at 28-24. A 26-yard field goal by Matt Prater with 5:46 left gave the Golden Knights a 31-27 lead.

Asante Samuel's interception at UCF's 2-yard line with 36 seconds sealed the Golden Knights' first road win in 13 months.

"At the end of the year, we might look back and say that play turned us around," Schneider said. "I wouldn't be surprised at all. We've been working so hard to make things go right, and they finally were right in the end."

B-CC 49, DELAWARE ST. 7: Quarterback Allen Suber ran for two touchdowns and passed for two as the host Wildcats started 7-0 for the second time in three seasons.

Suber's touchdowns were caught by receiver Erik Lash, who also scored on a 12-yard run in the second quarter. Suber scored on the second play from scrimmage after his 38-yard completion to Lash to the Delaware State 1 set it up. Another 56-yard toss to Lash set up Suber's second 1-yard scoring dive in the first quarter.

The other two Wildcat scores came on a 100-yard interception return by Rashean Mathis on the final play of the third quarter and a 30-yard, fourth-quarter pass from backup quarterback Scot Austin to Norman Graham.

B-CC, No. 15 in the Sports Network Division I-AA poll, took sole possession of the lead in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference at 3-0.

HOWARD 28, FAMU 24: Donald Clark hit Jonathan Brewer with a 37-yard touchdown on fourth down with 2:34 left for the visiting Bisons. Howard overcame six turnovers and had two touchdowns called back because of penalties.

Florida A&M, No. 21 in the I-AA poll, led 24-21 at halftime thanks to three touchdown passes by Reggie Hayes. But the Rattlers committed three turnovers in the fourth quarter.

W. KENTUCKY 56, FIU 7: Jason Michael directed scoring drives on the first three possessions for the host Hilltoppers. Michael scored on first-half touchdown runs of 7, 8 and 1 yards and threw a 25-yard scoring pass to Jerome Reaves to put Florida International behind 42-0 at halftime.

YOUNGSTOWN ST. 24, FAU 17: P.J. Mays ran for two touchdowns for the visiting Penguins, who led 24-3 at halftime. Florida Atlantic scored touchdowns on Daveon Barron's 15-yard run and Jared Allen's 1-yard run in the fourth quarter.
