Morgan State looks to end season on positive note at Savannah State

Morgan State (2-8) at Savannah State (3-6)

When: Saturday, 1 p.m.


Site: Theodore A. Wright Stadium, Savannah, Ga.

Radio: 88.9 FM


Series: Morgan State leads, 8-0

What's at stake: A victory would provide an upbeat finish to a dismal season for the Bears, who have lost six straight. This game, postponed from Oct. 8 because of Hurricane Matthew, gives Morgan State a chance to rebound after last week's 60-3 loss at Army. Though winless on the road this year, the Bears are 4-0 all-time in Savannah.

Key matchup: Morgan State's running game vs. Savannah State's defense. In two of their last three games, the Bears have totaled just 60 yards on the ground and are averaging 2.9 yards per rush this season — a far cry from the halcyon days of Leroy Kelly, Frenchy Fuqua, Mike Collier and the like.

Player to watch: Keep an eye on Fred Farrier, the interim head coach at Morgan State who will learn his fate sometime after this game.
