Morgan St. 14, Howard 9

Morgan State’s offense was out-gained but its defense and

special teams stepped up for a 14-9 win over Howard on

Saturday.

Richard Ndubueze sacked Howard quarterback Greg McGhee on the

Bison 18-yard line, and Michael Dallas recovered the fumble in the

end zone for the Bears’ first score at MetLife Stadium with an

attendance of 24,996.

Morgan State (2-2, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) scored

its only offensive points on Robert Council’s 3-yard pass to

Kristian Johnson early in the second quarter. The Bears took a 14-9

lead at halftime and won its seventh straight, and ninth in 10

games against the Bison (1-3, 0-2)

Howard had several chances to pull closer, but kicker Parker

Munoz missed a 35-yard field goal attempt and had his 39-yarder

blocked by Morgan State’s Collin Bing.

The Bison finished with 375 yards of offense, while Morgan State

had just 187.
