DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Cleveland McCoy passed for two touchdowns, propelling South Carolina State to a 24-13 win over Bethune-Cookman Saturday.
SCSU took the early lead (1-0) in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference standings, while Bethune-Cookman fell to 0-1 in the league and 1-1 overall.
McCoy threw an 11-yard strike to Spencer Miller early in the third quarter and a 49-yarder to Oliver Young in the fourth quarter. McCoy completed 10 of 18 passes for 88 yards and rushed seven times for 66 yards, as did teammate Travil Jamison.
The Bulldogs jumped to 10-0 midway through the first quarter. Stephen Grantham nailed a 35-yard field goal at 12:28 for the initial score.
Bethune-Cookman's Jimmie Russell pitched errantly toward Corey Council on an option play at the 26-yard line, with SCSU's LaQuinn Ellerbe grabbing the ball and racing 23 yards before being stopped at the 3-yard line.
Jamison then plunged across the goal line. Grantham's extra-point kick at 7:32 made it 10-0.
Bethune-Cookman's 83-yard, 17-play drive produced a 24-yard field goal by Lucas Esquivel at 4:24 of the second quarter.
Another Russell pitch, recovered by SCSU's Bailey Brinson at 31-yard line, led to McCoy's first TD toss and a 17-3 lead.
Council's 98-yard kickoff return and Esquivel's 27-yard field goal -- both in the third quarter -- cut the Bulldog advantage to 17-13.
Then came McCoy's second TD toss, which sealed the victory.
