COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Jalen Simmons had touchdown runs of 5 and 15 yards, Javon Hargrave returned a fumble 61 yards for a touchdown, and South Carolina State beat Division II Benedict College 63-0 in the Palmetto Capital City Classic on Saturday.

Simmons had 78 yards on 12 carries to lead the Bulldogs rushing attack, which amassed 381 yards on the ground and had four players gain 50 yards or more.

Adrian Kollock Jr. completed 15 of 18 for 160 yards to lead the South Carolina State passing attack.

The Bulldogs defense was equally efficient, holding Benedict to only 228 yards of total offense and just 14 first downs

South Carolina State was picked second in the MEAC preseason poll, and Saturday's victory was its seventh consecutive against Benedict dating back to 2002.
