The Rams struck first on their very first possession of the game, going 64 yards in five plays before junior quarterback Kameron Smith threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to senior receiver Jahaunn Butler. Kicker Alejandro Suarez, a sophomore, added the extra point for a 7-0 lead.

Bowie State wasted no time cutting into the early first quarter Rams lead, taking the second possession 63 yards in six plays, but only managed three points on a 28-yard field goal by redshirt sophomore kicker Mario Diaz-Aviles at the 8:54 mark. Unfortunately, those would be the only points the Bulldogs would score for the rest of the game.

Winston-Salem State’s Smith tossed his second touchdown pass of the game, this time from 25 yards out to junior receiver Tehvyn Brantley early in the second quarter. Suarez converted the PAT to make the score 14-3 which is where the score stood going into halftime. read more…
