WASHINGTON (AP) -- Larry Duncan's 18-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Brian Johnson gave Howard University a 20-17 victory over Delaware State on Saturday, ending the Hornets' six-game winning streak.

Johnson ran for 120 yards and threw for 127 to lead the Bison (5-6, 4-4 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), who rallied from a 17-7 third-quarter deficit. Johnson completed 6 of 14 passes for two touchdowns with two interceptions.

Arlandus Hood's 25-yard touchdown reception from Johnson pulled Howard to 17-14 late in the third quarter before Duncan's fourth quarter score put the Bison on top.

Emmanuel Marc's 29-yard touchdown run gave Delaware State (8-3, 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 the second quarter.

Howard concluded its season by winning four of its last five games. ^
