Carl Painter ran 77 yards for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and Hampton went on to beat Bowie State, 25-7, yesterday at Bowie State.
The losers have lost 32 straight games, the nation's longest losing streak. Columbia, which will open next Saturday, has lost 31 straight.
Despite being outgained in yards, 277-30, the Bulldogs trailed only 13-7 at halftime. That was because Bowie State defensive back Rodney Belfield intercepted a screen pass and went 75 yards for a touchdown 11 seconds before intermission.
But in the second half, a touchdown run by Anthony Jones and a scoring pass from Derocke Croom to Terrence Groom completed the scoring.
Hampton rushed for 297 yards, 148 by Painter, and held the Bulldogs to 60 yards on 30 carries. The Pirates had 465 total yards and 25 first downs.
