Kevin Johnson's 4-yard TD run and Carter's 19-yard scoring strike to Da'Kendall James were sandwiched around a 14-yard TD run by Howard's Dedrick Parson and the Spartans (2-5, 1-2 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) led 14-7 after one quarter.
Josiah Crute pulled the Bison (1-6, 1-2) even at 14 with a 4-yard TD run. Norfolk State regained the lead on Carter's 4-yard run, but Quinton Williams connected with Kyle Anthony for a 16-yard scoring strike and Howard evened the score at 21 with 2:12 left in the first half. Carter needed just three plays to put the Spartans on top for good, hitting Justin Smith for a 29-yard score and a 28-21 halftime lead.
Carter and Smith teamed up for a 65-yard scoring strike and Carter added a 2-yard TD run in the third quarter before capping the scoring with a 30-yard TD toss to Tylan McElhenie in the fourth.
