Associated Press

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Daryl Jones ran for 4 touchdowns, and scored from a yard out with 36 seconds remaining to give Norfolk State a 38-31 win over Bethune-Cookman on Saturday.

The Spartans (2-1, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) were trailing 31-23 when Jones scored on a 1-yard run with 3:32 left to play and Casey Hansen's two-point conversion pass to Jamar Johnson tied the game.

Terrell Whitehead intercepted a pass from Jimmie Russell and returned it 36 yards to the Bethune-Cookman 7 and four plays later, Jones scored from the 1 with 36 seconds to play.

Russell threw for one touchdown and ran for 100 yards and another score for the Wildcats (2-2, 0-2), but his lone interception of the day cost his team dearly.

Jones, who ran for 118 yards on 21 carries, also scored on runs of 32 and 2. Whitehead also scored on a 48-yard fumble recovery.

Hansen was 12-for-24 for 153 yards and one interception.
