ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- Richard Cue threw four touchdown passes -- the last a 97-yarder -- to four different receivers in South Carolina State's 41-23 victory over Howard in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game Saturday.
Cue, who completed 24 of 38 passes for 366 yards, threw his first touchdown pass, a 14-yarder, to Dwight Brannon. It gave the Bulldogs (4-5, 3-3 MEAC) a 7-0 first-quarter lead. Cue struck twice in the second quarter, hitting Lennel Elmore for a 40-yard touchdown and Caleb Davis on a 20-yarder for a 27-10 halftime lead.
Cue saved his best for last: a 97-yard scoring pass in the fourth quarter to Tyler McDonald.
Terrence Leffall tried to keep the Bison (5-3, 4-2) in it throughout Cue's onslaught. Leffall carried the ball 24 times, gaining 127 yards and scoring twice on short touchdown runs. That wasn't enough to deny Cue.
South Carolina's loss to The Citadel, coupled with Georgia and Florida struggling in tight victories, was an embarrassment for the conference.
