North Carolina Central Eagles (2-1)


Freshman Caldwell throws for 2 TDs, NCCU tops SC State 33-28

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Freshman backup quarterback Chauncey Caldwell threw for two touchdowns and rushed for 77 yards to help North Carolina Central beat South Carolina State 33-28 on Thursday night in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

NCCU (2-1), the defending MEAC champions, won its 16th consecutive conference game.

NCCU starter Micah Zanders left the game early in the second quarter after taking a hard hit and did not return. Caldwell was also injured in the fourth quarter, but third-stringer Naiil Ramadan had a 20-yard touchdown pass to Jacen Murphy to pull the Eagles within 28-26. Ramadan's two-point conversion attempt was stopped short.
