DOVER, Del. -- Mitchell Ward kicked a 26-yard field goal as time expired to lift Delaware State in a come-from-behind victory over Howard 22-20 Saturday.
Down 20-13, Cole Murphy connected with Milton Williams on a 33-yard touchdown pass to pull Delaware St. (4-5, 4-2 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) within one with 1:38 remaining. The Hornets recovered the ensuing on-side kick, and Murphy led a nine-play drive to set up Ward's winning kick.
Murphy, who leads the MEAC in yards passing, was 20 of 30 for 241 yards without an interception. He also had a team-high 49 yards rushing.
Howard (3-6, 2-4) took a 14-13 halftime lead, highlighted by Richard Aiyegoro's 75-yard kickoff return. The Bison then opened the fourth quarter with a 13 minute, 99-yard drive capped by a 4-yard TD run by Anthoy Philyaw.
