NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Daryl Jones had two touchdown runs and Justin Castellat kicked four field goals to lead Norfolk State to a 33-7 win over Division II Virginia State on Saturday night.

The Spartans (1-0) trailed 7-6 at the end of the first quarter after Virginia State's Devon Wiggins intercepted a pass from Casey Hansen that resulted in a 34-yard interception return.

Jones put Norfolk State ahead for good at the end of the second. Jones rushed for 125 yards for the Spartans, but both touchdowns came on one-yard runs.

Vince Hicks had a 4-yard run in the third quarter and Castellat padded the Spartan's lead.

Hansen was 22-of-42 for 245 yards for the Spartans.

Norfolk State, who lost 27 seniors from last season's team, kept the Trojans (0-2) to 92 yards passing. The Spartans rushed for a total of 232 yards.
