TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Damien Fleming threw for 245 yards and
accounted for two touchdowns to lead Florida A&M to an easy 34-7
win over Delaware State on Saturday night.
Fleming, a freshman quarterback who made his first start,
completed 14 of 29 passes and threw one interception for the
Rattlers (3-2, 1-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference). He connected
with Brian Tyms on a 23-yard touchdown to give Florida A&M a 13-0
lead.
The Ratters' defense was solid against Delaware State (2-3,
0-2), holding them to 181 total yards. Despite the Hornets
offensive struggles, they were able to score for the first time in
more than 11 quarters when Milton Williams caught a 9-yard pass
from Nick Elko in the fourth quarter.
But Florida A&M would not allow the Hornets to score the rest of
the way. Fleming scored on a 1-yard run and Eddie Rocker added a
20-yard touchdown run in the final quarter.
