ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — Juwan Carter threw for 281 yards and a touchdown and ran for a score and Norfolk State beat South Carolina State 17-7 on Saturday night.

Carter completed 22 of 38 passes, including a 6-yard TD pass to Isaiah Winstead, and scored on a 1-yard run to give the Spartans (2-1) a 14-0 halftime lead.

Tyrece Nick hit De’Montrez Burroughs on an 81-yard TD pass with 1:07 left in the third quarter and the Bulldogs (0-3) were driving for another score early in the fourth quarter when the Spartans’ Bobby Price recovered a fumble on the Norfolk State 5.

The game between the MEAC teams was played as a nonconference matchup.
