So who on Morgan State's roster will UB fans have to watch out for this week?

Morgan State's two deep played out like many though it would.

Rushes Net TDs Att Comp Int Yards TD
2011 40 -43 1 186 97 7 1116 9
2012 4 9 0 31 14 1 153 0
Total 44 -34 1 217 111 8 1269 9

At quarterback the starter is Seth Higgins, a six foot five sophomore who is their pro style quarterback. Last season he took over from Josh Council after the the Howard game, starting their last seven games as a true freshman.

CAR YDS AVG TD LG
T. Davidson 22 107 4.9 2 70
B. Mann 12 29 2.4 0 7
R. Council 5 25 5 0 13
S. Higgins 4 9 2.3 0 10
Team 43 170 4 2 70

Council still backs up Higgins up, and in doing so gives the bears a change of pace QB, last week against Sacred heart he ran the ball four times.

The Bears are more dangerous on the ground than in the air. Travis Davidson and Brian Mahn lead Morgan State's running game. Last season Davidson rushed for 732 yards and seven touchdowns last season, last week in their 2012 opener he ran for 107 yards on 22 carries, scoring two touchdowns.
