What's at stake: Morgan State snapped an 11-game losing skid and earned the program its first victory at home since Sept. 1, 2012, by defeating Florida A&M, 34-21, on Oct. 5. The Bears, which are coming off a bye week, are still 2 1/2 games behind South Carolina State in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference standings and in a four-team logjam for eighth place. Morgan State has won seven of the past 10 meetings against North Carolina Central, including the last games in Durham, but the Eagles narrowly won last year, 24-20, when they scored a touchdown with 25.6 seconds left in regulation. North Carolina Central has lost two of its past three games, including a 44-3 rout by South Carolina State on Oct. 10. The Bears are seeking their first win on the road since Oct. 6, 2012, when they blistered Savannah State, 45-6.
