Bethune-Cookman 38, Alabama St. 28

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Broderick Waters threw two touchdowns and ran for another as Bethune-Cookman erased a three-touchdown, first-half deficit and defeated Alabama State 38-28 in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge at the Florida Citrus Bowl Sunday.

Waters came off the bench to help Bethune-Cookman score 38 straight points. He completed six of nine passes for 109 yards and rushed for 100.

B-CU took a 24-21 lead on Waters' 6-yard run with 4:28 remaining in the third quarter after instant replay overturned a call on a fumbled kickoff return and gave the Wildcats the ball on the Alabama State 25.

The Hornets scored on three of their first four possessions to take a 21-0 second quarter lead.

Greg Jenkins scored two touchdowns to cap off drives of 75 and 72 yards, and Isaiah Crowell's 2-yard run was set up by a Bethune-Cookman fumbled punt on its own 20.
