Delaware State’s quarterback Anthony Glaud was sacked by Nicolas Hollinghead on a fourth and two with 13 seconds remaining in the game to give the Florida A&M University Football team a 17-14 win over the Hornets, Saturday evening in Dover, DE.

FAMU (1-1, 1-0 MEAC) grabbed the early 3-0 lead in the first quarter as Trevor Scott nailed a 26-yard field goal with 12:11 remaining on the Rattlers first possession.

Kevin Elliott led FAMU receivers with four receptions for 51 yards, while both Brian Tymes and Antonio Lawrence finished with a pair of touchdown receptions. Tymes finished with the game with 50 yards receiving on two catches, while Lawrence had two catches for 33 yards.

Alvis Graham led the Rattler defense with 10 tackles (1 solo, 9 asst) and 0.5 tackled for a loss of one yard.

FAMU will return to the Mid-Atlantic region this Saturday to take on Howard University in Washington, DC (Green Stadium) in a 1 p.m. kick-off.
