Morgan State (0-5, 0-1) had an apparent 76-yard touchdown run by Alonzo Graham in the first half negated by a holding penalty and also missed a 41-yard field goal.

The Bison broke a scoreless first half with a 35-yard field goal by Woodson with 13 seconds left on the clock.

Five minutes into the second half, Williams found receiver Antoine Murray on the 97-yarder TD pass. Early in the fourth quarter, Williams hit Richie Ilaraza from the 9 to extend the Bison lead. Ian Wheeler completed the scoring with a 20-yard touchdown run, capping a 13-play, 55-yard drive in the fourth quarter.

The Bison (2-4, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) are on a two-game win streak for the first time since the 2018 season.
