Broderick Waters threw two touchdowns and ran for another as Bethune-Cookman erased a three-touchdown, first-half deficit and defeated Alabama State 38-28 in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge at the Florida Citrus Bowl Sunday.
Waters came off the bench to help Bethune-Cookman score 38 straight points. He completed six of nine passes for 109 yards and rushed for 100.
B-CU took a 24-21 lead on Waters' 6-yard run with 4:28 remaining in the third quarter after instant replay overturned a call on a fumbled kickoff return and gave the Wildcats the ball on the Alabama State 25.
The Hornets scored on three of their first four possessions to take a 21-0 second quarter lead.
Greg Jenkins scored two touchdowns to cap off drives of 75 and 72 yards, and Isaiah Crowell's 2-yard run was set up by a Bethune-Cookman fumbled punt on its own 20.

Alabama State raced out to a 21-0 lead over the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats in the 2012 MEAC/SWAC Challenge. It has been all downhill from there for the Hornets, however, who now trail, 24-21. Needless to say, Alabama St.'s mascot isn't taking the collapse well.
Cheer up, buddy. The Hornets still have 13 minutes left to go to get back on top.
It was third and 10 when Bethune Cookman converted this Hail Mary against Alabama State. The Alabama State defensive back saved a touchdown with his speed. This game is taking place in Orlando, Florida and it’s pretty hot down here. There is nothing more beautiful than a well executed screen play. This comes next. Hail Marys and Four Verticals are things of beauty when executed properly.
