— North Carolina Central put up little resistance Thursday night as the South Carolina State Bulldogs dominated in a 44-3 win at O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium in Durham.

SC State got two touchdowns from freshman running back Xavier Quick and wide receiver Tyler McDonald moved within one reception of the school’s all-time record as the Bulldogs won their fifth consecutive game and improved to 3-0 in MEAC play.

For NC Central, they were held to just 33 yards in the first half and 105 for the game as they fell to 3-3 on the year and 1-1 in conference play. NC Central vs. South Carolina State (Oct. 10, 2013) Slideshow: NC Central falls to SC State, 44-3

Overcoming a turnover on their first possession, SC State marched 60 yards on five plays on their second drive, finding the end zone on a 36-yard reception by Dennis Rowe as they took a 7-0 lead they never lost.

The Bulldogs added a field goal and a 2-yard run from Quick as their lead grew to 17-0 after one quarter. McDonald, who entered the game 11 receptions behind Oliver (Tre’) Young for the SC State record in receptions, ended the night with 10 for 70 yards.

The Eagles defense surrendered another 2-yard Quick score and a 9-yard touchdown by Justin Taylor as the halftime deficit was 34-3.

NC Central, who had won three of their last four games under interim head coach Dwayne Foster entering Thursday, amassed just 40 yards of total offense on 44 plays through three quarters. Their first play of the fourth quarter went for 50 yards into SC State territory before the drive stalled.

NC Central quarterback Jordan Reid ended the night 9-for-25 for 116 yards and was sacked five times.

SC State quarterback Richard Cue finished the night 18-for-27 for 191 yards and a touchdown. Quick, Taylor, Charles Brown and Dondre Freeman-Lewis combined to run for 226 yards and four scores out of the backfield.

NC Central will be at home again on Oct. 19 for their homecoming game against Morgan State.

    I always get a kick out of toddler & the race card. Truth bother you, T? Truth is, I don't care about either of these schools and I never watch teams in this state unless there is nothing else on. Football in this state ain't that good, never has been anything to brag about, & you can play your race card all day but it's not gonna change my opinion.

    And no, I don't follow GT players around after they leave. Don't have the time & just not that concerned about it.

    WSSU lost in the Division two championship a year ago, but no one in NC cared except for black college fans. I'm sure some were glad the Rams lost. B you know what you meant. I sure some of Garners alum play for black schools. Don't you follow them? Or do they have to attend big time schools to really matter.

    Is there ever a football team in nc worth discussing? Forgot six wins is a excellent year. ECU is the best in NC right now.

    Aside from fans of those schools, does anybody else really care?

    Dook fans would rather not discuss it.

    Are there any football teams in NC worth discussing? That would be a NO.

    Which is why I posted "fans of those schools". You're clearly a "fan" of both schools. Try again!

    I guess the comments are because you are really bored..."anybody else" could be a fan of ANY team; it doesn't matter what division the schools represent. I am an NCSU alumna while my child attends NCCU...so your comment wasn't quite as effective as you thought...fans of the other schools are also "fans of those schools" who care about both.
