FAMU rallies to beat NC A&T for 4th-straight win, 22-21
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Yahia Aly made a 26-yard field goal with four seconds left, giving Florida A&M a 22-21 comeback win over North Carolina A&T on Saturday.
Florida A&M (5-2, 4-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic) trailed 21-6 at halftime after N.C. A&T’s Lamar Raynard completed a 6-yard TD pass to Zachary Leslie with 91 seconds left before intermission. After the break, Azende Ray scored on a 5-yard run to reduce the Rattlers‘ deficit to 21-13.
Late in the fourth, Ryan Stanley completed an 11-yard pass to Chad Hunter, the 2-point conversion attempt failed and FAMU trailed by three. Florida A&M’s defense forced the Aggies (5-2, 2-2) to punt. Stanley — who threw for 313 yards — led FAMU on a 13-play, 70-yard drive to set up Aly’s game-winning kick.
The victory was the fourth straight for the Rattlers, their longest since a four-game winning streak in 2011.
Raynard led N.C. A&T with 248 yards passing and two scores and Leslie had 140 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
