When: Saturday, 2 p.m.

Site: Dick Price Stadium, Norfolk, Va.

Radio: 88.9 FM

Series: Norfolk State leads, 19-11

What's at stake: After two straight losses, coach Fred Farrier promises a shake-up for Morgan State. Freshman DeAndre Harris is expected to start for the Bears, replacing grad student Chris Andrews. Never mind that hapless Norfolk State has lost its last six games; the Spartans have defeated Morgan State in their last nine meetings. Moreover, the Bears haven't won on the road since Oct. 3, 2015.

Key matchup: Morgan State vs. the clock. In six games, the Bears have scored just three points in the third quarter, a trend not lost on the coaching staff.

Player to watch: Eric Harrell, the Bears' sophomore running back who rushed for 121 yards last week in a loss to North Carolina Central.
