Frostburg State's defense broke up Buffalo State's two-point conversion attempt with just over a minute remaining to hold on for a 27-26 win in an Atlantic Central Football Conference game in Frostburg.

Clinging to a 27-20 lead with 6:24 remaining, the Bobcats (2-2, 1-2) watched as the Bengals drove 74 yards and pulled to within a point on a 15-yard touchdown run by James Perkins with 1:18 remaining.

Having struggled all day with its special teams play, Buffalo State decided to attempt a two-point conversion and came up empty as Mike Mikolaichik's pass was just out of reach of a diving Tom Cocker.

The Bengals (1-3, 0-2) had another chance when they recovered the ensuing onside kick near midfield. But Kevin Culbert and Ryan Cutsail stuffed Mikolaichik on fourth-and-one from the Bobcats' 42 with 22 seconds remaining.

Shaw 22, Bowie State 20 -- Devin Chatman returned an interception 94 yards for a touchdown with 28 seconds left to seal the victory for the host Bears (3-3). Bowie (4-2) managed to drive 61 yards and score a touchdown on the game's final play, but Richard Armstrong's two-point conversion pass fell incomplete to preserve the Bears' win.

Nathaniel Queen amassed a team-high 120 yards on 15 carries, but it was a second-quarter return of a blocked extra point by Shaw's Olayi Nunnally that proved to be game's most significant play.

Salisbury 77, Apprentice School 13 -- Leroy Satchell rushed for 53 yards and three touchdowns to lead a dominating Sea Gulls ground attack, which totaled 379 rushing yards and scored nine of their 11 touchdowns on the ground. The host Sea Gulls improved to 4-1 overall and 2-0 in the ACFC, and the Builders fell to 3-2 and 1-2.

Johns Hopkins 35, Dickinson 14 -- The Johns Hopkins defense scored two touchdowns in a game for the first time since the 2000 season and set up two more scores as the Blue Jays (4-0, 1-0 Centennial Conference) rolled past the host Red Devils (1-3, 0-1).

McDaniel 28, Ursinus 20 -- Ron Ringgold (Aberdeen) accumulated 11 tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown to lead the Green Terror (4-0, 1-0 Centennial) past the visiting Bears (1-3, 0-1).
