The Line: Army Black Knights -49.5 -- Over/Under:
The Morgan State Bears and Army Black Knights meet Saturday in college football action at Michie Stadium.
The Morgan State Bears look for victory to rebound from a rough 0-2 start. The Morgan State Bears have lost five of their last eight road games. DeAndre Harris is completing 52.2 percent of his passes for 253 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Harris has to be more efficient through the air for the Bears to compete in this contest. Manasseh Bailey and Xavier Gravette have combined for 214 receiving yards and one touchdown while Deontaye White has two receptions. The Morgan State Bears ground game is averaging 62.5 yards per contest, and Jabriel Johnson leads the way with 51 yards on 18 carries. Defensively, Morgan State is allowing 54.5 points and 563.5 yards per game. Ian McBorrough leads the Morgan State Bears with 22 tackles, Merinio Dendoe has one sack and Maurice Lewis Jr. has one interception.
The Army Black Knights look for a win to start the season 3-1. The Army Black Knights haven’t lost a home game since November of 2016. Kelvin Hopkins Jr. is completing 41.7 percent of his passes for 96 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The Army Black Knights have eight touchdown passes dating back to last season. Artice Hobbs IV and Kell Walker have combined for 79 receiving yards and one touchdown while Christian Hayes has one reception. The Army Black Knights ground game is averaging 257 yards per contest, and Connor Slomka leads the way with 151 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Army is allowing 14.7 points and 281 yards per game. Cole Christiansen leads the Army Black Knights with 28 tackles, Elijah Riley has three sacks and Javhari Bourdeau has one interception.
The Morgan State Bears have had a really hard time these last couple of years and this season doesn't seem to be any different. However, Army isn't the type of team that blows the doors off opponents. The Army Black Knights run the ball a lot, chew up the clock and can have a hard time finishing drives if they get behind the chains just once. Morgan State has no chance to make a game of this given what we've seen, but this is a truckload of points to pass up. Give me the Bears and the free touchdowns.
