ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- Kimari McFadden picked off a pair of passes -- returning one 34 yards for a touchdown -- as South Carolina State topped Norfolk State 14-0 in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference action Saturday.
McFadden's score was the Bulldogs' second touchdown of the first quarter, and proved all the scoring the team needed. Julius Pendergrass supplied the other touchdown, punching in from 3 yards out just over a minute into the game.
