GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) Lamar Raynard threw for 169 yards and two touchdowns and North Carolina A&T won its sixth consecutive game 30-20 over South Carolina State on Saturday.

South Carolina State (3-5, 3-2) led 20-16 after three quarters, taking the lead on a Caleb York 1-yard run. However the Aggies rallied, regaining the advantage on a 9-yard Raynard TD pass. Marquis Willis added the exclamation point, intercepting a York pass and returning 29 yards for a touchdown.
York had 193 yards passing and two total TDs for the Bulldogs.
