TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)Quarterback Curtis Pulley ran for 132 yards and three touchdowns Saturday to lead Florida A&M to a 45-24 win over Hampton.

Pulley also threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Isaac West, as the Rattlers (8-3, 4-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) scored 35 straight points to overcome an early 10-0 deficit.

Philip Sylvester added 92 rushing yards and two touchdowns for Florida A&M. The Rattlers have won five of their past six games, while Hampton (5-5, 4-3 MEAC) has lost four in a row.

Herbert Bynes completed 29 of 61 passes for 401 yards and three touchdowns for Hampton. Justin Brown caught 10 passes for 147 yards.

Hampton took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter on a 7-yard touchdown pass from Bynes to Brown and a 40-yard field goal by Carlo Turavani.

But Pulley cut the lead to 10-7 early in the second quarter on an 11-yard touchdown run. He scored on a 14-yard run with 1:58 left in the second quarter and followed with a 30-yard touchdown just 55 seconds later.

Sylvester gave Florida A&M a 28-10 lead in the third after he scored on a 38-yard run. He also had a 4-yard scoring run in the fourth.

Bynes threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Dennis Mathis in the third and a 2-yard passing score to Jeremy Gilchrist on the final play of the game. Florida A&M held Hampton to -14 rushing yards.

The game marked the first time the teams have played since Joe Taylor left Hampton after last season to become Florida A&M coach.

Taylor coached the Pirates for 16 years, compiling a 136-49-1 record. Jerry Holmes replaced Taylor at Hampton.
