HAMPTON, Va. (AP) -Winston-Salem built a 25-point third-quarter lead and then held off Hampton for a 35-30 victory on Saturday.
Jarrett Dunston scored three touchdowns and the Rams (2-6) nearly tripled their scoring average of 12 points to give coach Kermit Blount his 89th win, tying him for most in school history.
The Pirates (5-3) lost their second straight game.
David Irizarry returned a missed 50-yard field goal attempt 100 yards for a 14-3 first-quarter lead, then sealed the win with a fourth-quarter interception of Herb Bynes, who threw for 348 yards and two touchdowns.
Those two touchdowns, both to Justin Brown, came less than five minutes apart in the fourth quarter as Hampton cut a 25-point deficit to 35-30.
But a 2-point conversion failed, and Bynes was picked off on Hampton's next drive.

Dunston helped Winston-Salem build a 35-10 lead by scoring on two 1-yard runs in the second quarter and on a 20-yard run in the third.
