MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) Middle Tennessee freshman Malcolm Beyah caught a 32-yard touchdown pass as time expired to beat Florida Atlantic 14-13 Tuesday in front of the third largest crowd in Floyd Stadium history.
Quarterback Joe Craddock tossed a pass to Beyah on a fourth-and-9 and freshman kicker Alan Gendreau added the extra-point to finish the rally from a 10-0 fourth-quarter deficit.
The Blue Raiders (2-3, 1-2 Sun Belt Conference) snapped a four-game conference losing streak, their longest since 1980.
Craddock was 24-of-35 passing for 268 yards and two touchdowns, the other going to Patrick Honeycutt for 25 yards earlier in the fourth quarter.
Florida Atlantic running back DiIvory Edgecomb scored on a 53-yard touchdown on the game's sixth offensive play to put Florida Atlantic (1-4, 0-1) ahead 7-0. He finished with 101 rushing yards on 15 carries.
Florida Atlantic kicker Warley Leroy had a pair of 25-yard field goals.
Middle Tennessee forced four Florida Atlantic turnovers, but did very little offensively until the two fourth-quarter touchdowns.
