Tuskegee rallies to beat Florida A&M 20-17
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) Kevin Lacey threw a 23-yard TD pass to Desmond Reese with 2:21 left to play and Division II member Tuskegee overcame four second-half turnovers to rally past Florida A&M 20-17 in Saturday's 5th Quarter Classic.
Trailing 13-7 at halftime after a missed field goal, the Rattlers defense forced four turnovers in the third quarter, including two fumbles and two interceptions of Lacey's passes. Austin Miller kicked a 43-yard field goal and Kenneth Coleman hit Brandon Norwood on a 5-yard TD pass and Florida A&M led 17-13.
But the Rattlers (0-3) couldn't hold on and were hurt by dropped passes, penalties and a fumble that gave the Golden Tigers (3-0) the ball late in the fourth quarter.
Lacey threw for 162 yards and Coleman for 162, including a 28-yard TD pass to Norwood in the second quarter.
It's the first time the teams have faced each other in 20 years.
