November 19, 2010|By Mike Miller, The Baltimore Sun

Hampton (5-5) @ Morgan State (4-6)

Time: 4 p.m.

Radio: 88.9 FM

Site: Hughes Stadium

Series: Morgan State leads 36-21-2.

What's at stake: It's senior day for the Bears in the 60th meeting between the teams. Morgan has dropped its past three games, including a 32-10 home loss to South Carolina State last week. The Pirates are losers of four straight after falling, 17-12, at Florida A&M on Saturday.

Key matchup: Hampton senior DL Kenrick Ellis is one of the leading tacklers in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, making 10 stops per game. Ellis has 90 tackles this season and two sacks and will try to pressure Morgan freshman QB Delonte Williams, who was sacked eight times last week. Williams completed 16 of 25 passes for 171 yards against South Carolina State but could not find the end zone.

Players to watch: Junior DB Reshaude Miller has emerged as one of the Bears' biggest defensive threats with four interceptions and 58 tackles this season, second on the team. Morgan junior WR Winfred Diggs caught two passes for 60 yards last week and has 322 receiving yards on the year. Hampton junior QB David Legree is the fifth-leading passer in the MEAC, having thrown for 1,436 yards and eight touchdowns this season. Legree connected with sophomore WR Javaris Brown for a 22-yard touchdown pass last week. Brown made eight catches for 141 yards against the Rattlers and leads Hampton with 536 receiving yards this season.
