Morgan State’s football team remained winless on the season after falling to Liberty University, 38-10, on Sept. 14 in Lynchburg, Va. The Bears are now 0-3 and have lost their last nine straight games dating back to last season.
Liberty piled up points and yards on offense, totaling five touchdowns and 431 yards during the game.
Morgan State couldn’t stop Liberty’s running game as the Virginia-based school scored all five of its touchdowns on the ground. Liberty’s junior running back duo of Clifton Richardson and Desmond Rice couldn’t be stopped. Rice ran for 97 yards and three touchdowns, while Richardson added 86 yards and two touchdowns. Liberty’s freshman quarterback Moses Skillion added 90 more rushing yards.
Morgan State, however, wasn’t able to generate much of anything on offense; the Bears finished with a season-low 171 yards.
"We're going into every game to win, but we're trying to use a new offense, new defense, new special teams and we're trying to use these [first four non-conference games of the season] that we have as more of a preseason,” MSU head coach Don Hill-Eley said.
“We're trying to get guys to come together – learning who we are, what we are, what we can do, what we can't do and gaining some continuity."
Morgan State has its fourth and final non-conference match of the season when Western Kentucky hosts them in Bowling Green, KY. on Sept. 21
