DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Quentin Williams threw for 165 yards and ran for two touchdowns to rally Bethune-Cookman to a 36-23 comeback win over Grambling State on Saturday.

Trailing 23-22 in the fourth quarter, Bethune-Cookman (2-0) drove 46 yards to set up a Haden Hoggarth field goal but took the first down instead after a roughing-the-kicker penalty against Grambling State. Danny Dillard ran in the 5-yard go-ahead TD two plays later.
The Wildcats then held the Tigers (0-3) and scored again in the final minute when Drexler Dixon ran in for a touchdown from the 3 to give Bethune-Cookman its first win over Grambling State since 1954.

Williams was 13 of 18 in the air and had 40 yards rushing. Anthony Jordan had 73 yards on 20 carries.
