Cimaglia, North Carolina A&T beat Florida A&M 16-3

AP - Sports

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Zach Cimaglia kicked three field goals-33, 30 and 27 yards- to help North Carolina A&T beat Florida A&M 16-3 Saturday in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference showdown.

D'Vonte Grant's 35-yard interception return for a touchdown put the Aggies ahead 16-3 and sealed the victory.

North Carolina A&T snapped a nine-game losing streak to Florida A&M and held the Rattlers without an offensive touchdown for the first time since 1938.

Cimaglia's two first-quarter field goals put North Carolina A&T (5-4, 3-3) ahead early 6-0.

The Aggie defense held strong the entire game, allowing only a field goal in the second quarter for a 6-3 score at halftime.

The early lead and field goals proved to be enough for the Aggies, as Florida A&M (3-6, 3-3) was held scoreless in the second half.

A strong running game, led by Mike Mayhew's 92 yards, helped North Carolina A&T ride out the victory.

Florida A&M's Joe Taylor announced that he will retire from his 40-year coaching career at season's end. Taylor is tied for third most wins amongst black college coaches, with a career record of 233-96-4, and a 35-19 record at Florida A&M.

Taylor led 11 teams to NCAA playoff or bowl appearances but his greatest success came at Hampton, where he compiled a 136-49-1 record, while winning eight conference titles and four black college football national championships in 1995, 2004, 2005, and 2006.
