Williams, Bethune-Cookman beat Norfolk State 48-3

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Quentin Williams' two touchdowns and a stingy defense helped Bethune-Cookman dominate Norfolk State 48-3 Saturday.

Bethune-Cookman (5-2, 4-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) scored on its first possession as Williams found Eddie Poole for a 5-yard touchdown and an early 7-0 lead. Williams completed 9 of 11 passes for 157 yards.

Norfolk State's (2-6, 0-5) offense was unable to move the ball the entire game.

The Wildcats' impressive defense was on display when D.J. Howard returned a fumble 69 yards for the touchdown to give Bethune-Cookman a 14-0 lead.

Bethune-Cookman scored the next 20 points before Everett Goldberg's 33-yard field goal made it 34-3 going into halftime.

Brodrick Waters scored the only points of the third quarter, running it in from 8 yards, boosting the lead to 41-3. Waters finished with 103 yards on nine carries.

Bethune-Cookman's defense forced two fumbles and an interception, while allowing just 75 yards on the ground.

Bryce Harper's longtime friend Kris Bryant says Harper isn't headed for Cubs


Bryce Harper's longtime friend Kris Bryant says Harper isn't headed for Cubs

After weeks of twists and turns and not enough information for any Nationals fan's satisfaction, the Chicago Cubs seem to be out of the race for free agent Bryce Harper.

Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant seemingly confirmed the news on Friday night from the opening ceremonies of the 2019 Cubs Convention.

"He's not signing here," Bryant said as he sat down with NBC Sports Chicago. 

Though there have been no official reports of whether or not the Cubs are completely out in the race to sign Harper, a word from one of Harper's longtime friends shouldn't be brushed aside.

Bryant and Harper took the field together in the 2016 MLB All-Star game, and faced off in the 2017 NLDS Cubs-Nats matchup. 

The pair have known each other since grade schoool, and played for rival high schools in Las Vegas. But despite their history, Bryant says that they haven't chatted much about the situation otherwise, choosing to focus on preserving their friendship.

"I never bring it up to him," Bryant admitted. "I try to be a good friend to him, and not talk about baseball when he doesn't want to talk about baseball."

"Whatever happens, I wish [him] the best."
