BALTIMORE (AP) Peter Pujals passed for three touchdowns and 240 yards and Holy Cross pulled away from Morgan State to win 51-24 on Saturday in the season opener for both teams.

Morgan State stuck around for a while - the Bears led 17-14 midway through the second quarter on Orlando Johnson's 1-yard touchdown dive, his second TD of the game.

But Holy Cross benefited from a poor snap that ended as a safety and after the two-pointer, the Crusaders travelled 67 yards in nine plays, culminating with Diquan Walker's 3-yard plunge. On the ensuing drive, Morgan State was stopped on fourth-and-14 on a sack at the Bears 42 with 1:21 left in the half. Pujals then led a quick scoring drive, hitting Teddy Capsis from the 3 with 18 seconds to go.

Two Holy Cross third-quarter touchdowns - a 12-yard run by Gabe Guild and Pujals' 12-yard toss to Lucas Nikolaisen - put it out of reach. Guild and Walker both rushed for two touchdowns.
