BATON ROUGE, La. -- Florida A&M's Jacquay Nunnally had 16 catches to break Jerry Rice's Division I-AA career reception record Saturday night, helping the Rattlers to a 50-49 victory over Southern University.
Nunnally, a senior, has 306 career receptions. Rice, the San Francisco 49ers' record-setting receiver, had 301 at Mississippi Valley State from 1981-84.
While Nunnally's hands kept Florida A&M in the game, Juana Vasquez's foot proved to be the difference.
Vasquez kicked a 29-yard field goal with 21 seconds left for the winning points.
Southern took a 49-47 lead on an 18-yard field goal by Justin Mattingly with 2:44 to go.
Florida A&M received the ensuing kickoff at its 27 and used an illegal participation call against Southern and two key third-down passes from Quinn Gray to Nunnally to set up Vasquez's game-winner.
The Rattlers had 670 yards of total offense. Gray was 29-of-55 for 376 yards and three touchdowns. Nunnally had 155 yards receiving. O.J. Marchbanks and Gary led the Rattlers' 294-yard rushing attack with 150 and 113 yards, respectively.
Southern piled up 684 yards of offense, its third straight game with at least 500 yards. Terrence Levy was 21-of-33 for a career-high 460 yards and five touchdowns. Michael Hayes had 11 catches for 217 yards and two scores.
UCF 20, LA. TECH 16: Ryan Schneider passed for two touchdowns and Edward Mack ran for the winning score for the visiting Golden Knights.
Schneider completed 18 of 37 passes for 254 yards for UCF. Louisiana Tech freshman Luke McCown was 34-of-52 for 363 yards and one touchdown but was intercepted twice.
Tech moved ahead 16-13 on McCown's 55-yard touchdown to Frank Thompson and Corey Addision's 2-yard scoring run.
But UCF drove 90 yards in 14 plays late in the fourth quarter, with Mack running 6 yards for the winner with 4:47 remaining.
B-CC 34, HAMPTON 31: Allen Suber ran for 139 yards and scored three touchdowns for the visiting Wildcats.
Suber, a former Tampa Catholic star, scored his first two touchdowns early on runs of 21 and 11 yards as Bethune-Cookman took a 17-0 lead in the first quarter. He also passed for 124 yards, going 10-for-17 with no interceptions.
Johnny Vickers scored the Wildcats' last touchdown on a 32-yard run early in the fourth quarter.
Pirates quarterback Ataveus Cash ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns and completed 9 of 23 passes for 150 yards. Montrell Coley ran for 118 yards and two touchdowns.
Hampton never led.
DRAKE 42, JACKSONVILLE 0: Ira Vandever threw two touchdowns and ran for another for the host Bulldogs.
Drake took a 6-0 first-quarter lead on Vandever's 27-yard pass to Bill Martin and extended that to 19-0 at halftime after Phil Joseph's 44-yard run with 6:18 left in the half.
The Bulldogs held Jacksonville to one first down in the first quarter.
Vandever connected with Aaron Overton on a 15-yard touchdown and scored on a 3-yard keeper.
