Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Henti Baird returned an interception 30 yards for a touchdown with 26 seconds remaining to lead Hampton to a 31-24 win over Bethune-Cookman on Saturday.

Baird's return -- Hampton's third touchdown in the final 2:40 of action -- came 14 seconds after the Pirates had tied the score at 24-all on a 10-yard touchdown pass from T.J. Mitchell to Jeremy Gilchrist.

Hampton (5-4, 4-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) broke a three-game losing streak with the win.

Bethune-Cookman (3-6, 1-5) had taken a 24-17 lead with 2:28 to play when Corey Council returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown.

Bethune-Cookman trailed 10-2 at halftime, but scored two third-quarter touchdowns to take a 17-10 lead. Brian Sumlar's 50-yard run at 13:15 and Lucas Esquivel's extra-point kick moved the Wildcats to 10-9. Then Jimmie Russell scored on a 12-yard run, and his two-point conversion pass to Victor Johnson gave the Cats a 17-10 edge.
