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.
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.
