Yesterday, the North Carolina A&T Aggies beat the Alcorn State Braves 41-34 in the inaugural Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
Kwashaun Quick led the Aggies with 149 yards in the air.
But his teammate Tarik Cohen stole the show with his incredible performance, including a 73-yard score on the ground with just over four minutes remaining.
Cohen, who was the smallest player on the field Saturday afternoon, had 22 carries and rushed for a school-record 295 yards and three touchdowns.
“Everyone won today, all HBCUs won today,” MEAC Commissioner Dennis Thomas said after the game, HBCU Sports reports.

“Without my offensive line none of this would have been possible.” Cohen said.
He added: “I felt like they played a tremendous game. All week they have been hearing how they are holding the team back. A lot of people want to say they are the soft point of our team. So they took that and ran with it, and showed everybody on national TV they are not to be messed with.”
