Senior wide receiver Oliver Tre' Young had six catches for 166 yards and two touchdowns as South Carolina State clinched its second straight Mid-Eastern Athletic League title and a playoff berth with a 37-13 victory over visiting Morgan State.

The Bears (5-5, 3-4) lost their fourth consecutive game overall and their seventh straight to the Bulldogs (9-1, 7-0).

After Morgan's Carlton Jackson scored on a 7-yard run in the first quarter to pull to 14-7, South Carolina State went on to score 23 consecutive points.

Bulldogs quarterback Malcolm Young completed 21 of 32 passes for 319 yards and four touchdowns, and William Ford rushed for 107 yards on 20 carries.

South Carolina State out-gained Morgan in total offense 448-276.

Johns Hopkins 38, McDaniel 14: : The visiting Blue Jays (8-2) clinched the Centennial Conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Division III playoffs by taking down the Green Terror (5-5).

The playoff appearance will be the second for Johns Hopkins, while the conference title is the fifth since 2002.

While the Blue Jays never appeared in danger of losing, they couldn't quite put away the pesky Green Terror (5-5, 3-5) until the fourth quarter.

Leading 21-7 early in the quarter, Johns Hopkins needed four plays and 60 seconds to go 44 yards for a touchdown.

A 16-yard run by freshman Jonathan Rigaud and a 22-yard pass from sophomore Hewitt Tomlin to classmate Sam Wernick set the Blue Jays up inside the Green Terror 10-yard line, and senior fullback Jay Adams took it in from 2 yards to extend the lead to 28-7.

A 21-yard field goal by junior Alex Lachman and a 42-yard interception return for a touchdown by sophomore Mike Milano extended the lead to 38-7 before the Terror got an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Matt Cahill with just over a minute to play.

Salisbury 34, Frostburg 19: : Randal Smedley rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries to lead the host Sea Gulls (5-5) over the Bobcats (1-8).

Salisbury, which gained 382 of its 425 yards of total offense on the ground, outscored Frostburg 14-0 in the fourth quarter.
