Associated Press

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Quarterback Byron Selby completed 11 of 20 passes for 216 yards and one touchdown as Morgan State sneaked by Howard 36-33 in overtime Saturday.

Morgan State kicker James Meade made a 23-yard field goal after Howard's Dennis Wiehberg missed a 38-yard attempt to seal the win for the Bears.

Morgan State (4-3, 3-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) jumped out to a 10-0 lead thanks to an 84-yard touchdown reception from running back Chad Simpson, but Howard (2-4, 0-3) would score the next 17 points, highlighted by a 46-yard touchdown run by Karlos Whittaker.

Simpson tied the score at 17-17 on Morgan State's next possession when he dove into the end zone from 2-yards out. In the first half, Simpson had two catches for 106 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 15 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries, but missed the last two quarters with a sprained ankle.
