ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Richard Cue threw two touchdown passes en route to South Carolina State's 30-22 win over North Carolina A&T on Saturday.

North Carolina A&T (4-6, 3-4 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) jumped out to an early 14-3 lead behind two touchdown passes from Lewis Kindle. However, a 37-yard touchdown strike from Cue to Tyler McDonald sparked a 27-point scoring burst for the Bulldogs.

During the run, Cue also threw a 14-yard touchdown to DeWain Clark, Devonne Quattlebaum returned an interception 55 yards for a touchdown and Blake Erickson kicked two field goals.

Cue finished with 161 yards on 13-of-27 passing but threw three interceptions.

Kindle led the way for North Carolina A&T, recording 215 yards and two touchdowns. But his two interceptions sparked the Bulldogs' (6-4, 5-2) comeback.

South Carolina State, on pace to finish with its first winning record since 2003, has won two games in a row.
