Benedict College stays undefeated after 20-3 win over Miles College

The 24th-ranked Tigers, in the national polls for the first time in program history, ran their record to 6-0 with Saturday’s victory.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Kendall Norman delivered a 77-yard punt return for a score, helping Benedict College (6-0, 4-0 SIAC) defeat Miles College 20-3 Saturday at Charlie W. Johnson Stadium.

Norman’s fireworks on special teams gave Benedict a 13-0 lead. John Lampley would connect with Jayden Thomas on a nine-yard touchdown with a minute remaining in the second quarter, giving Benedict a 20-0 lead at halftime.

The only scoring in the second half was a field goal by the visitors. 

The Tigers won in spite of putting up just 132 yards of total offense (85 yards passing, 47 yards rushing).
