HAMPTON, Va. (AP) — Terrence Lefall rushed for 131 yards on a school record 42 carries and combined with Howard’s defense to edge Hampton 10-7 on Saturday.

Greg McGhee scored on a 2-yard run in the second quarter, capping a 16-play, 74-yard drive for the Bison.
Howard’s defense kept the Pirates off the field, as the Bison maintained possession for 41:19, compared to 18:41.
Howard added three more points in the second half as Lanny Kelly’s interception set up a Parker Munoz field goal. Munoz nailed the 23-yarder to put Howard up 10-0 with 7:70 left in the third quarter.
Hampton (5-4, 3-3) responded less than five minutes later when Charles Owens recovered a McGhee fumble in the end zone.
