ATLANTA (AP) -- Lavante Page rushed for five touchdowns,
including two in the fourth quarter, as Florida A&M rallied to
defeat Southern University 38-33 on Saturday at the Georgia Dome.
Page scored on a 2-yard run with 3:38 remaining in the game for
the go-ahead touchdown as the Rattlers (2-2) erased a 33-17 deficit
over the final 15:11.
The Rattlers picked off Southern quarterback Dray Joseph three
times, including twice in the fourth quarter. Florida A&M's John
Williams intercepted a pass that set up a drive ending with Page's
1-yard touchdown run with 11:09 to play. That cut Southern's lead
to 33-31. Marvin Ross sealed the win for the Rattlers with an
interception with less than a minute to go.
Page ended the game with 73 yards rushing on 16 carries.
Southern (1-3) led 19-17 at halftime on a 1-yard run by
Sylvester Nzekwe with 36 seconds remaining in the half.

    I think Eddie Rocker should get some credit for the rushing. He got it started.
