ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -
Kimari McFadden picked off a pair of passes - returning one 34 yards for
a touchdown - as South Carolina State topped Norfolk State 14-0 in
Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference action Saturday.
McFadden's score was the
Bulldogs' second touchdown of the first quarter, and proved all the
scoring the team needed. Julius Pendergrass supplied the other
touchdown, punching in from 3 yards out just over a minute into the
South Carolina State (2-3,
1-1 MEAC) held the Spartans (2-3, 0-2) to 92 yards through the air, as
quarterbacks Nico Flores and Jake Basmagian combined to go 11 of 23
passing with three interceptions and two sacks. The Bulldogs also
recovered a forced fumble, blocked a punt and recorded eight tackles for
loss - including a pair by McFadden, who added a second interception in
the fourth quarter.
Takeem Hedgeman was the Spartans' lone bright spot, rushing for 148 yards on 26 carries.
