Florida A&M vs. North Carolina A&T final score: Aggies top Rattlers, 16-3

Richard Rowe-US PRESSWIRE

The Rattlers can't find the endzone in a defensive struggle against the Aggies, and are held without an offensive touchdown for the first time since 1938.

It was a frustrating game offensively for Florida A&M against North Carolina A&T on Saturday in Greensboro, N.C. The Rattlers piled up 256 yards but couldn't find the end zone in a 16-3 loss.

Florida A&M (3-6, 3-3 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) could manage only a field goal in the first half in its first game without an offensive touchdown since 1938. In fact, the game's lone touchdown was a defensive score, as North Carolina A&T's D'Vonte Grant picked off Rattlers quarterback Tyler Bass for a 35-yard-touchdown return. Three field goals from Aggies kicker Zach Cimaglia helped North Carolina A&T (5-4, 3-3) break a nine-game losing streak to Florida A&M.

Bass finished the game 26-of-36 for 183 yards and a pick. North Carolina A&T quarterback Kwashaun Quick managed just 40 yards on 4-of-7 passing, but the Aggies prevailed thanks to 92 yards on the ground from Mike Mayhew. Quick added 33 rushing yards of his own. Eddie Rocker led the Rattlers with 42 yards on 16 carries.

Florida A&M will try to snap a two-game losing streak when it hosts North Carolina Central in the final home game of the Rattlers' season. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. on Nov. 10.
