Morgan falls to Rutgers in 38-0 rout

Morgan State had very little go right in its 38-0 loss to host Rutgers yesterday.

The Bears (2-2) were limited to 109 total yards and were shut out for the first time on the road since 1998, a 55-0 loss to Hampton.


"Hell left the gate open," Morgan State coach Donald Hill-Eley said. "No, it was a situation where we were overwhelmed the first half and [had] turnovers. We can't do that against anybody and especially against them."

Jourdan Brooks ran for three touchdowns and Rutgers quarterback Mike Teel completed 11 of 18 passes for 188 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He led the Scarlet Knights to touchdowns on its first three possessions as the slow started doomed the Bears.


"I got back to what has made me successful in the past," Teel said. "That's slowing everything down, going through the play and the progression and then going out and having fun."

Teel had been living a nightmare until yesterday, playing poorly as Rutgers (1-3) lost its first three games to Fresno State, North Carolina and Navy. But he had a near flawless performance yesterday.

Morgan's quarterbacks, on the other hand, struggled. Carlton Jackson completed six of 12 passes for 38 yards, while backup Mario Melton threw for 39 yards on 4-for-9 passing.

MORAVIAN 33, JOHNS HOPKINS 10:: The host Greyhounds (4-0, 2-0 Centennial Conference) outscored the Blue Jays 16-0 after halftime and turned five Blue Jays turnovers into 13 points to cruise to a victory. Johns Hopkins (3-1, 1-1) got a game-high 117 yards rushing from junior Andrew Kase, his 10th career 100-yard rushing game.

WIDENER 30, FROSTBURG STATE 24:: Junior Bryan Brosnan threw for a career-high 287 yards and three touchdowns, but Widener's Ian Decker ran for three scores to lift the Pride to a nonconference win over the Bobcats at Bobcat Stadium. Widener (2-1) forced three fumbles and two interceptions while sacking Brosnan six times. Frostburg (1-2) turned the ball over on three of its first five possessions, and Widener converted two of those mishaps into touchdowns.

MCDANIEL 20, DICKINSON 13:: The Green Terror was out-gained on offense by 230 yards, but that didn't stop it from pulling the upset over the visiting Red Devils. T.J. Develin contributed 134 of McDaniel's 193 total yards and scored the winning touchdown after the defense recovered a Dickinson fumble late in the game.

SHAW 41, BOWIE STATE 10:: Lenell King highlighted the Bears' offense with 160 receiving yards, while quarterbacks Marcus Brooks and Travis Robinson combined to complete 18 of 33 passes for 299 yards, leading Shaw (3-2) over the Bulldogs (2-2).

DELAWARE VALLEY COLLEGE 41, SALISBURY 27:: The No. 6 Sea Gulls were handed their first loss of the season as it fell to Delaware Valley College (2-1) on the road. The loss is the first for the Sea Gulls (3-1) since their road loss in the first round of the 2007 NCAA tournament against Muhlenberg College on Nov. 17.
