TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Howard scored all its points in the fourth quarter, including 16 in the final 1:27, capping the improbable comeback with a Parker Munoz field goal with 4 seconds left for a 29-28 win over Florida A&M on Saturday.

Greg McGhee threw a 10-yard TD pass to Brandon Drayton with less than two minutes to go, and Andra Williams ran in for a 1-yard score with 26 seconds left to pull Howard (3-3, 2-2 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) within 28-26.

Still, all FAMU (3-3, 1-2) had to do was run out the clock from there, but on second down Damien Fleming fumbled the ball on the Rattlers' 28 yard line. Howard's Sackie Kerkulah picked up the loose ball and rumbled to the FAMU 15 with 15 seconds left, setting up Munoz's 21-yard game-winner.

FAMU led 21-0 at halftime.

McGhee passed for 193 yards, two TDs and three interceptions to lead Howard.
