AP - Sports

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Seth Higgins tossed a touchdown pass and ran for another to help Morgan State put away North Carolina Central 34-22 in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference matchup Saturday.

Higgins ran 11 yards for a score and threw a 27-yard strike to Graylin Harrison as the Bears (2-5, 2-1 MEAC) jumped to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.

The Eagles (3-4, 1-2) trimmed their deficit to 11 when Jordan Reid scored from nine yards out and Oleg Parent kicked a 41-yard field goal. Morgan State responded with two Chris Moller field goals and a 4-yard rushing score by Robert Council, pushing the Bears' lead to 24 in the fourth quarter.

NC Central pulled within 12 following an Adrian Wilkins 91-yard kickoff return touchdown and a 5-yard score from Malcolm Bell to DeMario Johnson, but couldn't inch any closer.

Lamont Brown III ran for 98 yards and a score for the Bears.
