The Bears came back from trailing, 14-0, in the first quarter and scored 17 points straight to take a 17-14 lead into halftime. But N.C. Central freshman quarterback Naiil Ramadan tossed a 16-yard touchdown pass for the Eagles to surge ahead, 21-17, with three minutes left in the game. Morgan State couldn’t score in time, losing their second straight game.
