Near the bottom of the MEAC standings with only two games remaining, Morgan is playing for pride and the upperclassman on senior day. Last week, the
suffered their third consecutive heartbreaking loss, when they were stopped on a fourth down late in the game. But breaking the three-game losing streak against the top team in the conference might take away some of the sting from those losses. But the
have steamrolled their last two opponents by a combined score of 90-20 and will be looking to improve their playoff position with another win.
The Bears’ chances of winning will come down to how well their defense can step up. Morgan ranks 10th in the MEAC in total defense (440.8 ypg) and will face the No. 1 offense in the conference. The Wildcats average 380.5 yards a game, with 235.1 of those coming on the ground. The Bears’ defense needs to slow down the high-octane offense, even just a little, to give its offense a chance.
