Florida A&M quarterback JaJuan Seider, making his first collegiate start, powered the Rattlers to an embarrassing 76-17 victory over South Carolina State in the Orange Blossom-Palmetto Classic yesterday in Jacksonville, Fla.
Seider, a transfer from West Virginia who was starting in place of an injured Quinn Gray, completed 20 of 26 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns in the first half.
The loss was the worst for the Bulldogs since an 80-0 defeat to the Rattlers in 1960.
