KENT, Ohio - Joshua Cribbs threw two touchdowns to Darrell Dowery and Kent State scored 20 off of eight Central Florida turnovers to beat the Golden Knights 36-16 Saturday.

The Golden Flashes kicked field goals after two of UCF's four fumbles and scored two touchdowns after interceptions, including Shannon Davis' 43-yard return with 1:09 to play.

Ryan Schneider completed 24-of-36 for 199 yards and one touchdown but had three of the Golden Knights' four interceptions. Tavaris Capers had nine catches for 82 yards and a 13-yard score for UCF.

Kent State took a 13-3 lead on Cribbs' 39-yard touchdown to Dowery with 4:31 left in the first quarter. The duo combined again on a 3-yard score in the second to make it 20-3.

FAMU 15, DELAWARE ST. 14: Ben Dougherty threw a 13-yard touchdown to Cardan Alexander as time ran out.

Host Florida A&M drove 74 yards in the final 1:01, with Alexander making a leaping catch in the corner of the end zone. Fans rushed onto the field to celebrate the score.

Dougherty came off the bench in the second half to lead the Rattlers to two touchdowns and a field goal. He did not play in the first half because of a shoulder injury.

Delaware State's Jamel Trott intercepted a Dougherty pass in the end zone with 2:23 left. But FAMU forced a punt, setting the stage for the final drive.

B-CC 56, NORFOLK ST. 14: Allen Suber passed for three touchdowns and ran for two to lead the visiting Wildcats. Suber had 116 yards on 13 carries and completed 8 of 12 for 143 yards.
