Tarik Cohen rushed for 295 yards and touchdowns of 83, 74 and 73 yards Saturday, and North Carolina A&T used a slew of big plays for a 41-34 win over Alcorn State in the Celebration Bowl at the Georgia Dome.
The Celebration Bowl, matching champions of the two historically black Division I conferences, had four scoring plays in the first quarter cover a combined 315 yards.
Cohen’s 73-yard scoring run with 4:17 left was the game winner, although Alcorn State threatened the Aggies ’til the end. Only when Lenorris Footman’s fourth-and-goal pass from the 9-yard-line sailed over a receiver with nine seconds left was North Carolina A&T (10-2) safe.
