Andre Clarke rushed for 93 yards and a touchdown as North Carolina Central rallied to beat Norfolk State 24-13 on Saturday.
Quarterback Jordan Reid scored the first Eagles touchdown in the first quarter on a 1-yard rush after driving 70 yards in 12 plays. He was 8 of 16 for 103 yards passing on the day.
Clarke's rushing TD came with under two minutes to go in the first half as the Eagles (5-6, 3-4 MEAC) trailed 13-7. An Oleg Parent field goal from 25 yards in the third gave the Eagles a 4-point lead. Then, early in the fourth quarter, NC Central blocked a Cameron Marouf field goal attempt from 29 yards and C.J. Moore returned it 70 yards for the final Eagles score.
