The Army football team ran for more than 500 yards and seven touchdowns in a 60-3 blowout victory over the Morgan State Bears on Nov. 19 in West Point, N.Y.

The loss marked the sixth straight for Morgan State, who dropped to a 2-8 overall record, 2-5 against the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).
Army (6-5 overall) ran the ball down the Bears’ throats from the start, scoring two first quarter touchdown runs to take an early 13-0 lead.  Morgan State kicker Alex Raya made a 24-yard field goal in the second quarter but that would be the only points scored by the Bears, Saturday.

Army scored two touchdowns in the second quarter to take a 30-3 lead into halftime, and scored four touchdowns and a field goal in the second half, ultimately beating Morgan State, 60-3.

Three different players ran for 100 yards or more for Army; five different Army players ran for at least one touchdown.

Morgan State struggled mightily as senior running back Lamont Brown III ran for just 20 yards on 11 carries. Senior quarterback Chris Andrews completed just eight of 20 pass attempts for 79 yards.

Next: Morgan State has one last game to play this season in a matchup with Savannah State on Nov. 26 in Savannah, Ga.
