SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Antonio Bostick passed for two scores and ran for another as Savannah State came from behind to win 27-20 against Fort Valley State on Saturday night.

Savannah State (1-2) earned its first win of the season in the home opener for the Tigers.

Fort Valley State (0-2) built a 13-0 lead before Lereginald Veals jump-started the Savannah State offense with a 92-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

Bostick threw a 26-yard TD pass to Simon Heyward to tie the game at 13-13 before the Wildcats regained the lead in the third quarter.

In the fourth, Bostick completed a touchdown pass to tie the game at 20-20 and then scored on a 1-yard touchdown run with less than five minutes left to complete the comeback.

The Wildcats generated 425 yards of total offense compared with 243 for the Tigers, but were hurt by three interceptions.
