TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- LeRoy Vann scored on two punt returns for the second straight week and Florida A&M beat Howard 48-10 on Thursday night.

Vann, who scored on returns of 40 and 66 yards, ran back two punts for touchdowns against Winston-Salem State last week. The senior has returned seven punts for touchdowns during his career, tying a Football Championship Subdivision record set by Northern Iowa's Kenny Shedd between 1989-1992.

The Rattlers (3-0, 2-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) built a 34-10 halftime lead, highlighted by Curtis Pulley's touchdown throws to Kevin Elliott of 46 and 35 yards. Pulley finished with 182 yards passing.

The Bison (0-2, 0-1 MEAC) scored their only touchdown when Casey Council scooped up a blocked punt and scored from 30 yards away with 7:22 left in the second quarter.

Floyd Haigler completed 10 of 24 passes for 87 yards for Howard.
