Florida A&M Rattlers (2-2)


Florida A&M holds off Savannah State with goal-line stand

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) Tevin Spells scored the go-ahead touchdown, the defense made a goal-line stand with four seconds to play, and Florida A&M held off Savannah State 20-14 in Saturday's Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference opener.

Trailing 14-7 at halftime, Savannah State's D'Vonn Gibbons tied it on a 40-yard run that capped a 12-play, 99-yard drive.

Spells's 6-yard TD run capped FAMU's next drive that was kept alive by key third-down completions thrown by Ryan Stanley. But the point-after attempt failed and the Tigers had a chance.
