Howard Capitalizes on Morgan State Miscue to Win

Game Stats

WASHINGTON, DC - Morgan State failed on a game-tying PAT attempt that allowed Howard University to escape with a 21-20 win over Morgan State in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference before an overflow homecoming crowd of 10,305 in Greene Stadium.

Trailing 21-14, the Bears (3-4, 2-2 in the MEAC) rallied and made things interesting when they drove 89 yards in nine plays to get within one on a 35-yard gallop by Morgan State quarterback Robert Council.  From there, Morgan State set up the potential conversion. 

Morgan State's Robert Miranda snapped the ball, but it was slightly over the head of the holder Saquan Moody, who reached for it.  But it was tipped by the placekicker Earvin Gonzalez.  In an attempt to salvage the play, Gonzalez attempted to pass for the two-point conversion but it was intercepted by junior linebacker Tabrian Resby.
