NC A&,T 22, Bethune-Cookman 3

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- North Carolina A&T's defense stifled the usually potent Bethune-Cookman offense in a 22-3 win on Saturday.

The Aggies (3-2, 2-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) recovered three fumbles, intercepted a pass, recorded a safety and held the Wildcats to 5 yards rushing. The win snapped the Aggies' seven-game losing streak in the series and gave them back-to-back conference wins for the first time since November 2003.

Trailing 3-2 in the first quarter, North Carolina A&T scored 20 unanswered points to put the game away. Mike Mayhew, who rushed for 117 yards, capped the scoring with a 9-yard run in the fourth quarter. Lewis Kindle overcame two interceptions to throw for 119 yards and a touchdown for the Aggies.

The Wildcats (2-3, 1-2), who had won the previous seven meetings in the series by scoring an average of 47 points, were held to 108 yards total offense.
