6-2) a 17-7 lead with 9:58 remaining in the third quarter. Marc
finished with 165 yards on 21 carries.

Shaheer McBride's 36-yard touchdown reception from Kurt Elden
put Delaware State ahead 7-0 in the first quarter before Karlos
Whittaker capped Howard's 14-play, 90-yard drive with a 7-yard
touchdown run for a 7-7 tie.

Josh Brite, who missed field-goal attempts of 29, 42 and 33
yards, gave Delaware State a 10-7 lead on a 37-yard field goal in
