Morgan State beats Howard 21-13

CHICAGO (AP) Moses Skillon threw two touchdowns as Morgan State defeated Howard 21-13 in Mid-Eastern Conference play on Saturday.

Skillon completed 16 of 29 passes for 211 yards for the Bears (1-2, 1-0). Andrew King caught both of his touchdowns and finished with 115 yards receiving.

Orlando Johnson's 3-yard scoring run in the first quarter and Skillon's two TD passes to King put Morgan State up 21-0 midway through the second quarter. Skillon had the Bears on the move again on their next possession, connecting with Ricky Fisk for a 7-yard pickup. But Fisk fumbled and the ball was recovered by Howard's Craig Johnson who took it 27 yards for a Bison touchdown, closing the gap to 21-7 at halftime.

In the second half, Morgan State went scoreless and gave up two field goals by Howard's John Fleck.

Kalen Johnson threw for 96 yards with one interception for the Bison (0-4, 0-2).
