WASHINGTON, D.C. (howard-bison.com) - Jamie Cunningham connected on a 13-yard touchdown pass to David Wilson with 22 seconds remaining to lift Howard University to a 30-29 win over Morehouse College in the Second Annual AT&T Nation's Football Classic at RFK Stadium before 16,911.
The game bore a strong resemblance to last year's match-up where the Bison (1-0) pulled out a 30-27 thriller. Morehouse had taken what appeared to be the game winner when Donnay Ragland hooked up with Devon Mann for a 72-yard catch and run that made the score, 29-24 with just 1:54 remaining.
That set the stage for Cunningham, a true freshman from Greensboro, NC who engineered the eight-play, 49-yard drive that was capped off by the 13-yard strike Wilson.
