49-yarder, came with 12:53 left in the second quarter and gave
Morgan State a 21-3 lead. Davidson scored on a 2-yard run 40
seconds later and again from 8 yards out after the Eagles (1-5,
0-3) fumbled the ensuing kickoff.
Seth Higgins accounted for the Bears other scores, throwing a
15-yard pass to Chuka Okakpu to open the scoring, then a 10-yarder
to Jorge Young to put the Bears ahead 42-3.
