North Carolina A&T cruises past Howard, 38-22
WASHINGTON (AP) Kwashaun Quick threw two touchdown passes and had a receiving TD to lead North Carolina A&T past Howard 38-22 on Saturday.

He also caught a 3-yard touchdown on a trick play from receiver Caleb Gabriel, but did not play in the second half because of an injury.

Howard (1-4, 0-1 MEAC) scored first on an 11-yard run by quarterback Greg McGhee, before the Aggies (4-1, 1-0) scored four consecutive touchdowns to take a 28-7 lead.
The Bison would cut the lead to 28-22 in the third, stringing together three straight scores, including an Aquanius Freeman 3-yard TD run and a short Justin Chainey TD reception.
