North Carolina A&T outlasts Jacksonville State in FCS Kickoff

A&T FCS Kickoff

North Carolina A&T shows it can compete with the top of the FCS with a gritty win over Jacksonville State.

MONTGOMERY, AL- It wasn’t pretty. At times it was downright ugly. But in the end, North Carolina A&T showed the FCS world it is one of the best teams in the nation.

A&T kept its win streak alive with a 20-17 win over Jacksonville State. The defending MEAC champs sealed the game on a forced fumble with 17 seconds remaining.

Defensive lineman Darryl Johnson sacked JSU quarterback Zerrick Cooper and the Aggies recovered to seal the game.

Quarterback Lamar Raynard threw two touchdown passes for A&T, one in the first quarter and another in the third, improving his record as a starter to 27-0. He completed just 12 of his 34 pass attempts and was picked off once, but his team picked up yet another victory.

The win was the 13th in a row for A&T who hasn’t lost since the first round of the 2016 FCS playoffs. It starts the season 1-0 and will look to win a game against an FBS opponent for the third consecutive year next year when it takes on East Carolina in Greenville.
