The Morgan State defense allowed 753 total yards, including 565 passing yards, as Akron (1-2) demolished the visiting Bears, 66-6, on Saturday at InfoCision Stadium, ending a 10-game losing streak for the Zips.

"It was a very fast tempo," Morgan State freshman defensive back DeShaun Summers said. "I still was adjusting to it throughout the game. They looked much better in person than they did on tape."

Morgan State (1-2) gave up 56 points in a 22-point loss last week at Buffalo.

Akron quarterback Dalton Williams threw for 438 yards and three touchdowns on a school-record 37 completions, and backup Kyle Pohl added 199 yards and three more touchdowns when Williams was knocked out of the game in the third quarter. The Bears' Travis Davidson ran for 77 yards on 19 carries.

Johns Hopkins 49, Moravian 15: Jim Margraff earned his 150th career coaching victory with the Blue Jays in a rout of the Greyhounds (1-2) at Homewood Field.

Johns Hopkins (3-0) rushed for a combined 338 yards and six touchdowns, including 114 yards and three touchdowns from running back Jonathan Riquad. Robbie Matey added 224 yards and a touchdown through the air for the Blue Jays.

Bowie State 24, Fairmont State 17, OT: Tyrae Reid threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns, the last of which was the game winner, as the host Bulldogs (3-0) defeated the Fighting Falcons (0-3) in Division II.

With 2 minutes, 15 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Reid connected with Douglas McNeil (7 catches, 105 yards, 1 TD) on a 33-yard touchdown to tie the game at 17.

In overtime, Corwin Acker (119 rushing yards, 59 receiving yards, 2 receiving TDs) caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Reid on the Bulldogs' opening possession and Fairmont State failed to reciprocate.

Muhlenberg 33, McDaniel 0: The Green Terror gained only 168 total yards in a home loss to the Mules (3-0).

Muhlenberg's Dan Deighan shredded the defense of McDaniel (0-3), throwing for 158 yards and one touchdown as well as rushing for 91 yards and two touchdowns.

Delaware Valley 34, Stevenson 10: Anthony Smith caught a pass for the Mustangs' only touchdown as the visiting Aggies (1-2) rolled.

Stevenson's K.K. Smith rushed for 170 yards on 32 carries, but the Mustangs (0-3) could not get anything going through the air, with quarterbacks John Gasparovic and Anthony Reid passing for just 14 yards on a combined 11 attempts.

Frostburg State 17, Case Western Reserve 16: Chuky Iweh caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Ken Emmons with 43 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter to lead the visiting Bobcats (2-1) to a victory over the Spartans.

After Case Western (2-1) kicked a field goal with 4:58 left, Emmons (221 passing yards, one touchdown) led a 10-play, 81-yard drive that was capped off by Iweh's game winner.

Salisbury 69, North Carolina Wesleyan 6: The host Sea Gulls (2-1) rushed for a combined 341 yards and seven touchdowns and dominated the Battling Bishops.

The Salisbury defense forced five turnovers while limiting N.C. Wesleyan (1-2) to 204 yards of total offense. AKRON 66, MORGAN STATE 6
