HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Aqeel Glass threw for 405 yards and four touchdowns and Alabama A&M beat Division II-member Tuskegee 45-35 on Saturday.
Alabama A&M (3-0) hasn’t lost a game since Nov. 16, 2019 when Alcorn State beat the Bulldogs 34-28.
The Tigers (1-3) closed to within 31-28 when Ivonte Patterson ran it from 1-yard out to end the third quarter and Louis Williams threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Jamaal Pritchett with 12 minutes remaining.
But the Bulldogs’ Gary Quarles ran 44 yards for a score on A&M’s following drive, and six minutes later Glass threw a 21-yard TD to Odieu Hilaire to make it 45-28 with five minutes left.
Quarles had 164 yards rushing on 24 carries with two scores, Abdul-Fatai Ibrahim had 177 yards on eight receptions and Dee Anderson caught three scores for Alabama A&M.
Patterson ran for 100 yards and three TDs for Tuskegee.
It was the first meeting between the two programs in seven years when the Bulldogs won 30-17 on Sept. 6, 2014. Alabama A&M now leads the overall series 28-20-3.
