DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Malcolm Bell threw for 295 yards and two scores and ran for another to lead North Carolina Central past Bethune-Cookman 31-14 Saturday night in a game that was delayed nearly three hours due to lightning.

Jamaruz Thompkins gave Bethune-Cookman (0-4, 0-2) a 7-0 lead after his 17-yard run capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive for the Wildcats.

Bell responded with TD tosses to Khalil Stinson for 25 yards and Glen Calvin for 2 yards to make it 14-7.

Ramone Simpson led North Carolina Central in rushing with 19 carries for 116 yards and a TD. He added 42 yards receiving.
