DOVER, Del. -- Olusegon Ayanbiola returned a fumble 22 yards for a touchdown with 2:13 left in the fourth quarter as Delaware State put away North Carolina A&T 31-26 in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference action on Saturday.
The touchdown return by Ayanbiola, which put the Hornets (1-5, 1-3) ahead 31-20 with 7:24 remaining, was too much for North Carolina A&T (0-7, 0-4) to overcome.
A 4-yard touchdown pass from the Aggies' Terrence Webb to Eldridge Cooper as time expired ended the scoring.
Justin Wilson caught three passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns for the Hornets, who failed to convert on three two-point conversion attempts and had two missed extra-point kicks by Mario Diaz-Aviles.
Mike Mayhew rushed for a game-high 132 yards and one touchdown in the loss for North Carolina A&T.
