Photo Gallery: NCCU Blows Out Hampton In Mack’s Homecoming Debut

Homecoming is a big deal at every HBCU, and for many coaches, a bad homecoming record can mean trouble. Judging from his team’s performance on Saturday, North Carolina Central’s Jerry Mack is off to a solid start. Mack’s NCCU came away with a 47-13 blowout win over Hampton at O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium on Saturday.

NCCU scored on offense, defense and special teams against Hampton, who shot itself in the foot with five turnovers. The two teams wer actually tied at 7 midway through the second quarter before NCCU went on a 23-point tear that would turn the tide of the game for good.

It started with a 15 yard touchdown pass from Malcolm Bell to Quinten Atkinson, built with a 20 yard punt return score from Mykael Martin, climaxed with a 55 yard interception return by Cameron Hughes and concluded with a 28 yard Eric Fenton.

By the time it was over, NCCU led 30-7 at halftime. The team’s traded field goals in the third quarter and touchdowns in the fourth, but the game was pretty much decided by halftime.

NCCU improves to 5-5 (4-2 MEAC) while Hampton dropped to 2-8 (1-5).
