Kollock helps SC State beat Florida A&M 34-17

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Andrew Kollock passed for a touchdown and ran for two more as South Carolina State defeated Florida A&M 34-17 on Saturday night, keeping the Rattlers interim coach Corey Fuller winless in two games.

South Carolina State held Florida A&M to 46 yards rushing and forced three turnovers. Kollock completed 15 of 23 passes for 224 yards, and the Bulldogs (7-3, 5-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic) remain knotted for the conference lead with Bethune-Cookman and North Carolina A&T.

Florida A&M fired Earl Holmes two weeks ago, appointing Fuller to take over.

The Rattlers Damien Fleming passed for 284 yards and a pair of touchdowns - his first for 13 yards to Dennis Hall as FAMU pulled to 13-7. Chase Varnadore added a 35-yard field goal and the Rattlers trailed 13-10 at halftime.

But South Carolina State scored twice more in the third quarter, jumping ahead 27-10.
