EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Morgan State scored its first two touchdowns of the season off two turnovers in the first half to beat Howard 20-3 on Saturday in the 39th annual New York Urban League Football Classic.

More than 34,160 attended the first college football game at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

Morgan State had yet to score a touchdown of any kind in three games, including a 14-7 opener win against Bowie State, which it won with four field goals and a safety.

But that streak ended with 10:52 left in the second quarter when Donovan Dickerson hit Chuka Okakpu with a 16-yard touchdown pass, giving the Bears (2-2, 1-1 Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference) a 10-0 lead.

Reshaude Miller picked off Howard's Casey Council, returning it 89 yards for a touchdown to put Morgan State ahead by 17.

Council fumbled four snaps in the first half for the Bison (0-4, 0-4).
