North Carolina A&T (5-6, 3-4) was held to 168 yards but built its 20-7 lead on a pair of field goals, a 52-yard fumble return TD by Stephan Davis and an 11-yard run by Kingsley Ifedi, the Aggies’ only offensive touchdown. Aaron Harris returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown following Gardner-Webb’s last score.
