Howard 28, Bethune-Cookman 0

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.
