Williams leads Bethune-Cookman past NC A&T 28-12

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Quentin Williams rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns and passed for 128 yards and another score as Bethune-Cookman pulled away from North Carolina A&T 28-12 Saturday.

With the Wildcats (4-2, 3-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) holding a 14-12 lead early in the third quarter, Isidore Jackson's fumble gave the Aggies (2-3, 0-2) the ball on the Bethune-Cookman 4.

But the Wildcats held firm, allowing just 2 yards, and blocked Zach Cimaglia's 19-yard field goal attempt.

Williams - who was 1-of-6 for 9 yards in the first half - then threw a 6-yard scoring pass to Rodney Scott.

After Dion Hanks picked off Lewis Kindle for the third Wildcats interception of the game, Williams added a 31-yard TD run to cap a 9 minute, 22-second drive.

Mike Mayhew, North Carolina A&T's all-time leading rusher, gained only 35 yards on 13 carries.

Lightning delayed the game 1 hour and 46 minutes.

Vernon Davis pulls off memorable proposal in Ocean City

Vernon Davis has long been a fan favorite in the D.C. area since his University of Maryland days. The 34-year-old is almost always well-dressed and respectful to the media. 

More recently, he has been outspoken about his interest in acting after his football career. A true renaissance man who just so happens to be a force in the National Football League. 

In April, NBC Sports Washington ran into Davis at the Team USA Awards where he was serving as guest speaker. 

He took his smooth nature to a whole new level Tuesday while vacationing in Ocean City, Md. with his girlfriend Kayla. 

Dressed in all white on the beach, Davis proposed in an epic way. 

The best motivation I ever had. #shesmyrock

Stephen Strasburg returns to Nats lineup after DL stint

Stephen Strasburg returns to Nats lineup after DL stint

Friday night marks the first second-half game of Major League Baseball's 162-game season. 

The Washington Nationals begin 5.5 games out of the first-place Phillies and host the second-place Braves for a three-game series before traveling to Milwaukee. 

One big piece to Dave Martinez's staff who has been missing since June 8 is Stephen Strasburg. The right-hander was activated from the DL and will start on the mound Friday night. 

Ryan Zimmerman was also activated but is not in Martinez's starting lineup. 

Prior to experiencing inflammation in his right shoulder during a June 8 start that forced him out of the game early, Strasburg saw flashes of dominance throughout his 13 starts owning a 3.46 ERA with 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings. 

Zimmerman hasn't played since May 9 due to a strained right oblique. With the emergence of Matt Adams, it will be interesting to see how Martinez uses both guys throughout the summer. 

Here is a look at Friday night's official lineup: 

According to Byron Kerr, Zimmerman is still happy to be back, despite not being in the starting lineup. 

Catch the Nationals hosting the Braves Friday at 7:05 p.m. on MASN2.
