HAMPTON, Va. -- Malcolm Long threw three touchdown passes to lead South Carolina State to a 21-9 victory over Hampton on Saturday.

Long was 21-for-26 for 234 yards with two interceptions. He connected with Chris Massey on a 22-yard scoring pass, then hit Terrance Smith for a 13-yard touchdown to give the Bulldogs (6-1, 4-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) a 14-0 halftime lead.

Hampton (3-4, 2-3) drew within 14-9 on a 26-yard field goal by Jordan Stovall and a 1-yard touchdown run by LaMarcus Coker with 11:59 left.

On the Pirates' next possession, Isiah Thomas fumbled on fourth-and-20 and LaTaris Douglas recovered for the Bulldogs at the Hampton 36. Long threw a 16-yard pass to Richard Christie, then found him again for a 20-yard touchdown with 4:32 remaining.

Hampton had only 197 yards total offense, with Coker gaining 75 on 24 carries.
