DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Brian Johnson threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third, carrying Howard past Bethune-Cookman, 28-0, on Saturday.
It was Bethune-Cookman's first shutout loss at home since a 27-0 setback to Hampton in 1997.
The Wildcats (5-5, 3-4 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) were limited to 158 yards -- only 21 rushing -- and suffered seven quarterback sacks. Endor Cooper registered five of those sacks, equaling the most by a Division I-AA player in a single game this season.
Howard (4-6, 3-4) used three ball carriers to maintain control of the ball while totaling 272 ground yards: Karlos Whittaker rushed for 91 yards on 16 carries, Antoine Rutherford 83 yards on 17 carries and Johnson 73 yards on 10 carries.
Not everything crystallized in the spring; Florida and Georgia will trot out new QBs, and Tennessee will hope Joshua Dobbs is ready to break out.

UCLA's new quarterbacks coach and passing-game coordinator, Marques Tuiasosopo, has made a good early impression on the Bruins and QB Josh Rosen.
While Notre Dame will be hit hard by the NFL draft, it doesn't necessarily spell doom for the 2016 Fighting Irish.
