Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- Brandon Flanagan's 42-yard punt return helped Howard take a third-quarter lead and the Bison withstood a late Florida A&M drive to win 17-10 Saturday.

Flanagan's return put Howard (4-1, 3-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) at the Rattlers 14 and Greg McGhee's 1-yard run made it 17-10.

McGhee's 31-yard pass to David Wilson put Howard ahead 10-7 with 1:02 left until halftime, but the Rattlers (2-4, 2-1) tied it in the third quarter on Chase Varnadore's 34-yard field goal. That score was set up by Lenworth Lennon's 39-yard punt return, followed by a facemask penalty.

Florida A&M started its final drive at its 2 and moved to the Howard 6 with 6 seconds left on nine Damien Fleming completions. Fleming couldn't find Michael Ethridge on his next two tries, however, as time ran out.

Fleming completed 26 of 41 for 228 yards and a touchdown but was sacked five times.
