DOVER, Del. -- Juwan Carter threw for 292 yards and two scores and Norfolk State's defense stymied Delaware State in a 17-7 win on Saturday.
After taking the second half kickoff, Carter completed his first touchdown pass on an 8-yard toss to Chuma Awanna with 10:07 left in the third quarter to put Norfolk State (1-3, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) out front 10-0.
The 57-yard drive was set up when Marcus Taylor returned the kickoff 38 yards to the Spartans' 43-yard line.
Delaware State (0-4, 0-2) got on the board at the start of the fourth when Nyfease West crashed in from 2 yards out to shave the deficit to three. But the Hornets put the game away on the following drive when Carter led a 6-play, 70-yard drive that ended when he connected with Awanna from 16-yards out.
The Hornets were limited to 226 total yards of offense. Jack McDaniels threw for 156 yards and was intercepted three times.
