Bethune-Cookman will put their 10 game conference win streak on the line when they face Morgan State in Baltimore on Saturday. The Wildcats are in sole-possession of first place in the MEAC and they boast the league’s top offense (380.5 yards per game). BCU is playing their best football of the season and have won their last three games by a combined score of 118-32.
Morgan State will be looking to play the role of spoiler and seeking to salvage what’s left of a hard-luck season. MSU’s 3 conference losses this year are by a total of 10 points. Senior running back Travis Davidson is the conference’s top rusher (805 yards, 11 TDs). Davidson gained 138 yards rushing on 17 carries in last year’s contest against BCU. Tyrone Hendrix is a gifted wide receiver and return man and both Robert Council and Seth Higgins are capable signal callers.
Defensively, MSU has struggled this year. The Bears are giving up a whopping 440 yards per game.
