NCCU Football Rallies to Edge Falcons in Double Overtime
DURHAM, N.C. – North Carolina Central University scored a touchdown in the final minute of regulation to force overtime, then made a 19-yard field goal in double overtime to beat visiting Saint Augustine’s University 23-20 inside O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium on Saturday.
NCCU (1-1) lit the scoreboard first with a 32-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Jordan Reid to senior receiver Lamar Scruggs with 3:51 remaining in the third quarter. Reid was injured on the play and could not perform his typical holding duties for the extra-point kick, which ended up failing because of a bobbled snap.
St. Augustine’s (0-1) answered on its next drive, using six plays to move 66 yards, capped by a 25-yard pass from A.J. Gilford to Herman Reaves at the 2:42 mark of the third quarter. The extra-point kick by Michael Lima put the Falcons on top 7-6.
