TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)Quarterback Curtis Pulley ran for 132 yards and three touchdowns Saturday to lead Florida A&M to a 45-24 win over Hampton.
Pulley also threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Isaac West, as the Rattlers (8-3, 4-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) scored 35 straight points to overcome an early 10-0 deficit.
Philip Sylvester added 92 rushing yards and two touchdowns for Florida A&M. The Rattlers have won five of their past six games, while Hampton (5-5, 4-3 MEAC) has lost four in a row.
Hampton took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter on a 7-yard touchdown pass from Bynes to Brown and a 40-yard field goal by Carlo Turavani.
But Pulley cut the lead to 10-7 early in the second quarter on an 11-yard touchdown run. He scored on a 14-yard run with 1:58 left in the second quarter and followed with a 30-yard touchdown just 55 seconds later.
Sylvester gave Florida A&M a 28-10 lead in the third after he scored on a 38-yard run. He also had a 4-yard scoring run in the fourth.
The game marked the first time the teams have played since Joe Taylor left Hampton after last season to become Florida A&M coach.
Taylor coached the Pirates for 16 years, compiling a 136-49-1 record. Jerry Holmes replaced Taylor at Hampton.
