Tennessee State beats Florida A&M 27-7

Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Tim Broughton rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown to give Tennessee State their first victory of the season with a 27-7 win over Florida A&M.

Telvin Hooks added to the ground game, rushing 12 times for 77 yards and a TD. The Tigers' freshman quarterback Ronald Butler was 14 of 21 for 131 yards.

The Tennessee State defense harassed the Rattlers all day, holding them to just 156 yards of offense, forcing two turnovers and keeping them only 2 of 12 on third-down conversions. Tigers' safety David Van Dyke intercepted a Damien Fleming pass on the first possession of the game and returned the ball 46-yards for a Tennessee State touchdown. The Tigers never looked back.

The Rattlers' lone score was a Damien Fleming 36-yard touchdown pass to Lenworth Lennon early in the second quarter.
